Tourism and Recreation

MIEDS conducted a visitor exit survey in 2015 with assistance from Parks Canada. Some initial results of this survey were shared at the Tourism Forum on September 19th.  Initial findings include:

81% of visitors to Haida Gwaii are over 45 years old
52% of visitors are from BC, 20% are Albertan and 12% American
¾ of respondents have an annual income of over $40,000
30% of visitors spent $1,000 - $2,000 on the islands during their trip

The slideshow is also available in the News and Reports section of our website. In an effort to support Haida Gwaii's tourism industry we are working toward the development and implementation of a comprehensive visitor survey in 2018 in partnership with Parks Canada, Destination BC and Northern BC Tourism
