The hotel/resort occupancy numbers are in for the first quarter of 2019. The February rate took a significant drop which is primarily attributed to the changing of the BC Family Day to the same date as the Alberta Family Day. This resulted in the compression of demand into one weekend as opposed to spreading this over two weekends for greater capacity. A slight drop was experienced in January with a strong increase in March. Tourism Tofino and many local businesses continue to place a strong focus on generating spring travel.
