The objective of this survey is to produce indicators on the performance of Québec hotel establishments and tourist accommodations with four or more rental units. The data, such as the occupancy rate, the number of units available, of units occupied, and of units occupied by visitors from outside the province of Québec, as well as the average rental price are then published by the Ministère du Tourisme.
The Institut de la statistique du Québec, also known as Statistique Québec, is a government agency whose mission is to produce, analyze and disseminate official, objective and quality statistics on various aspects of Québec society.
