The tourism and hospitality industry was hit particularly hard during the COVID-19 pandemic. Capacity restrictions, compounded by pandemic prevention protocols, led to prolonged non-essential lockdowns. While restrictions may have come to end, the economic after-effects are lingering.
From restaurants and independent retail to in-person entertainment, health & fitness, personal services, and travel & tourism businesses, the pandemic’s most deeply-affected sectors are striving to make up for lost time and two years of depressed revenues. This MB Pulse survey explored the path forward for the pandemic’s hardest hit sectors.
Business leaders and representatives of Manitoba employers were invited to share their insights as it relates to tourism and hospitality sector recovery and on travel plans for 2022. This survey was open to all members of the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce, MB Pulse members, as well as to interested members of the public from May 5 to May 11, 2022. A total of 118 surveys were completed. Read the full report.
