Visitor Statistics

Tourism Nova Scotia has numerous sources of data for our visitor statistics. These include:

  • In person surveys administered to passengers at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport
  • Motor vehicle enumerators at the Nova Scotia – New Brunswick border
  • Passenger information from the North Sydney, Caribou, Digby and Yarmouth ferries
  • The Nova Scotia Visitor Exit Survey

We use these sources of data to describe those who visit the province and to inform our decision-making process.
