The Canadian hotel industry recorded negative year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 25-31 August 2019, according to data from STR.

In comparison with the week of 26 August through 1 September 2018, the industry reported the following:

• Occupancy: -1.0% to 76.9%
• Average daily rate (ADR): -0.5% to CAD172.94
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -1.6% to CAD132.92

Among the provinces and territories, New Brunswick saw the only double-digit increase in RevPAR (+11.2% to CAD114.69), due largely to the highest lift in ADR (+5.9% to CAD140.48). The province saw the second-largest increase in occupancy (+5.0% to 81.6%).

Newfoundland and Labrador experienced the highest rise in occupancy (+7.5% to 67.3%), which resulted in the second-largest jump in RevPAR (+6.5% to CAD89.23).

Manitoba registered the steepest decline in RevPAR (-6.9% to CAD90.93).
