Nova Scotia Accommodations Needs Assessment Now Available

Tourism Nova Scotia recently hired Group ATN Consulting Inc. and the Economic Planning Group of Canada Tourism Consultants to complete a tourist accommodations needs assessment for Nova Scotia, in collaboration with the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency.

The report identifies accommodation-related opportunities and constraints that must be acknowledged and addressed if Nova Scotia’s tourism industry is to reach $4 billion in tourism revenues by 2024.

The report contains helpful information for accommodation operators, existing and potential tourism businesses, and investors, and outlines the inventory and profile of roofed accommodations and campgrounds, market context, and demand for tourist accommodation in Nova Scotia. It also provides key findings and insights related to:

  • Supply and demand
  • Quality
  • Seasonality
  • Barriers to growth
  • Needs and opportunities

To obtain a copy of the Tourist Accommodations Needs Assessment Final Report, please contact Janette Wallace, Quality Advisor, at or by phone: 902-424-1194.

Thank you to the organizations and individuals who participated in interviews and assisted with the research that went into this report. Its findings will help guide our future work and the growth of tourism in Nova Scotia.
