The 2018 tourism season is looking strong once again.
Tourism Minister Chris Palmer says stats for 2018 are very much on par to last year’s record breaking tourism season.
Palmer says a boost to 92 cruise ships visiting the province this year will also benefit the tourism industry.
Over 1.5 million people came to the province in 2017.
Palmer says his department continues to try to encourage more people to come in the shoulder seasons.
The tourism industry is worth about $450-million a year with nearly 8-thousand people employed in the business.
