COVID-19 Recovery Research

Tourism Nova Scotia is sharing research and insights to show what tourism recovery could look like in Nova Scotia.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a widespread impact on tourism businesses, related-organizations, events, and communities. Every tourism stakeholder faces a different challenge at this time. Our research team is working with Destination Canada and conducting its own research to develop scenarios for what post-pandemic recovery could look like in Nova Scotia. Based on this research, we are directing our resources towards programs, initiatives, and marketing activities that will help Nova Scotia’s tourism industry recover and rebuild.

Tourism Nova Scotia will continue to share updated research and marketing information as it becomes available. If you have questions about these reports, please contact us at
