HAC study shows Canadians still travel

TORONTO—The Hotel Association of Canada (HAC) has released data from its 2009 Canadian Travel Intentions survey indicating that despite the current economic crisis in Canada, 74 per cent of Canadians intend to travel in Canada either for business or leisure in 2009.  “They may not stay at the same type of hotel they usually stay at, spend less on food and drink and stay for a shorter period of time, but Canadians are planning to travel in Canada in 2009,” said Tony Pollard, president of the Hotel Association of Canada.
