A year to remember - about Canada-China Year of Tourism 2018
Although nearly 10,000 km separate our two countries, we are friends and family.
Today, more than 1.7 million Canadians—about 5% of Canada's population—have Chinese ancestry. Mandarin and Cantonese are the most spoken languages in Canada after English and French.
To celebrate our deep ties, the governments of Canada and China have officially named 2018 the Canada-China Year of Tourism. It's an incredible opportunity to celebrate our history and what makes us unique.
2018 will be a great year for Canadian tourism. We're ready to welcome record numbers of Chinese visitors, and Canadian tourism operators are ready to show off all the excitement and adventure that our country has to offer.
In 2016, more than 610,000 Chinese tourists visited Canada
More than 1.8 million Canadian jobs are related to the tourism sector
In 2016, international visitors contributed $20 billion to Canada's economy
In September 2016, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang officially declared 2018 the Canada-China Year of Tourism
The Government of Canada has set a goal of doubling the number of Chinese tourists coming to Canada by 2021
Canada recently opened seven new visa application centres in China to help Chinese visitors come to Canada more easily and quickly
China is currently Canada’s second-largest trading partner, after the United States
