Comments 0

HENDERSONVILLE, Tennessee—The Canadian hotel industry saw higher performance from the previous quarter, but at overall low levels, according to Q3 2020 data from STR.

Q3 2020 (percentage change from Q3 2019):

  • Occupancy: 38.1% (-49.8%)
  • Average daily rate (ADR): CAD131.65 (-28.0%)
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): CAD50.15 (-63.9%)

The absolute occupancy level was the lowest for any third quarter in STR’s Canada database, but was more than double the level from Q2 2020 (19.4%). The ADR level was the lowest for a Q3 since 2009.  

In absolute values, July was Canada’s lowest month of the quarter for occupancy (34.0%) and RevPAR (CAD44.71), while September was the lowest in ADR (CAD126.18). The country saw its lowest occupancy level during the week of 5-11 April, but has since reached a 30% level in the metric.

Among the provinces and territories, British Columbia reported the quarter’s highest occupancy level (48.3%), which was still down 41.5% year over year.

Newfoundland and Labrador showed the lowest occupancy (30.7%), down 57.4% from Q3 2019.
