Disastrous tourist season for Montreal

Visits to major attractions in Montreal in June and August decreased as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic by 75 %, and hotel occupancy in the Сanadian metropolis was only 15%, according to Tourisme Montréal.

"The disastrous consequences of this crisis are evident for our sector, which will take several years to recover," the press release said.

The source of the problem - the closure of Canada's international borders and the introduction of a 14-day quarantine for all arriving from abroad.

As a result, there were fewer than 25,000 entries into Canada across the Quebec border, a 98% drop. At the same time, less than 310,000 passengers arrived through Montreal-Trudeau International Airport during the specified period – a 95% drop.
