The survey seeks informed opinions of industry participants about current and future conditions in their industry. Our objective is to produce good co-incident and leading indicators for the heritage institutions, performing arts, and recreation and entertainment industries specifically, and the tourism sector in general. These business tendency indicators measure: impediments to trade, current business activity and business activity outlook for the next three months.

The data are used by business operators and associations for market analysis and assessment of industry performance, operating characteristics and trends; by governments to develop national and regional economic policies; by agencies such as the Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC) and the Ontario Ministry of Tourism and Recreation (OMTR) for analysis and policy making and for providing valuable statistics and information feedback to the industries; and by Statistics Canada for maintaining important data input to the preparation of the Canadian System of National Accounts.
