Alberta registered the only double-digit drop in RevPAR (-10.9% to CAD68.32), due primarily to the second-largest decrease in occupancy (-9.6% to 50.4%).

Quebec saw the largest jump in RevPAR (+9.1% to CAD108.43), due primarily to the largest lift in ADR (+5.6% to CAD164.63) and the second-highest increase in occupancy (+3.3% to 65.9%).
