  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -12.3% to CAD85.28

Among the provinces and territories, British Columbia registered the only increase in RevPAR (+10.0% to CAD117.82), due primarily to the only double-digit lift in ADR (+11.3% to CAD173.18).

None of the provinces or territories experienced a rise in occupancy.
