Fredericton Sets Tourism Records on Way to Best Year in a Decade

A dramatic increase in overnight visitors helped Fredericton’s tourism sector to a historic, record-setting year in 2016, Fredericton Tourism reported today.

The City’s tourism industry generated $258 million in economic impact last year, up 7.8%, according to an annual study by McKellar, Cunningham and Associates commissioned by Fredericton Tourism.  The report called 2016 “a major breakout year” for Fredericton where the City emerged as one of the performance leaders in the Maritimes.

It was the 5th consecutive year of record-setting revenue for the industry, but the first increase of more than 5% in more than a decade.
