Nova Scotia’s tourism industry began to rebound in July and August as border restrictions eased and people grew more comfortable travelling. While visitation and accommodation bookings continue to be well below pre-pandemic levels, the industry is showing strong signs of recovery.
Accommodation operators report 513,000 room nights sold in July and August, an increase of 82 per cent compared with the same months in 2020. Between July and August, Nova Scotia welcomed 364,800 visitors.
