Tourism in Canada
In Ontario - Niagara Falls
Niagara Falls is the collective name for three waterfalls that straddle the international border between Canada and the United States; more specifically, between the province of Ontario and the state of New York.
From largest to smallest, the three waterfalls are the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls. The Horseshoe Falls lie mostly on the Canadian side and the American Falls entirely on the American side, separated by Goat Island. The smaller Bridal Veil Falls are also located on the American side, separated from the other waterfalls by Luna Island.
To visit Niagara Falls it is for free, but you have to pay only for attractions .
For Canada, international tourism plays equally an important role in the economy.
Tourism is strategically important to Canada’s future competitiveness. It is vital for the country to generate real growth from international tourism markets by attracting foreign investment in Canadian tourism products.
Today, global tourism accounts for 1 trillion dollars (USD) in exports annually, 9% of worldwide GDP and is responsible for one out of every 12 jobs.
Based on Statistics Canada estimates, Canada’s tourism industry saw significant growth in 2011, contributing to the Canadian economy: $78.7 billion in tourism revenues; $63.6 billion from spending by domestic travellers; $15.1 billion from spending by overseas travellers; $31.1 billion to Canada’s Gross Domestic Product; $21.4 billion in government revenues.
