Overview

Snapshots: An Introduction to Tourism is a concise, easy-to-read overview of the Canadian tourism industry. Beginning with a history of the industry’s development, Snapshots proceeds to highlight the interrelation of the various components of the industry, as well as the impact of tourism on the Canadian economy, culture, and environment. The Sixth Canadian edition has been updated and reorganized to conform to the new North American Industrial Classification System’s five sectors of tourism and features a chapter devoted to each segment.
