Re: German visitors to Canada
BC = Forrest and Mountains

AB = Mixed Forrest/Mountains/Prairie's

SASK = Prairie

MN = Prairie

ON = Capital province. Mixed Forrest/Prairie

PEI = Fishing hole

Nova Scotia = Fishing hole

New Brunswick = Fishing hole

Anything North is a dead zone. Miles of freezing nothing.

If you like to spend money BC AB or ON is your best bet.

If you like small town harbor's east coast.

If your outdoorsy then go west.

But ultimately summer would have been better. Then you can do the whole AB/BC road trip. Which is like stepping into another world. A forresty wrong turn 4 kinda world.

What kind of study are you doing? There are better places to find out more about the preferences of German tourists.


BC is very popular and probably the most beautiful region imo.

 Quoting: canadian oldster


are you studying what people do in general for pleasure ? or what they do for work ?

work mostly mining & logging in northern ontario
sudbury
timmins
sault.ste.marie
thunder bay
kirkland lake

im sure 90% of northern ontario people would tell you they wouldnt want to live anywhere else in the world

the other 10% would probably say they want to be in toronto or some other (more populated) place like that in Canada

Re: German visitors to Canada
it is based on a decision made by our Mayor and council to send a new lady from town who came from Germany to market our small little town in northern ontario to Germany, A study shows that only 1 percent come to our area which is way north, I agreed with the study but the town thinks we can attract the German market here. I find it to hard to believe southern ontario, would be the better market and if they want to go a little noth for the bush North Bay market would be it or as some have said travel across Canada.

Re: German visitors to Canada
well wawa ontario could be considered a dead zone

it's got one of those stretch of highways where you need a full tank of gas to reach the next gas station & no cell phone tower signals

either that or go all the way north until you reach hudson bay
by the time you get there you'll be dead.
frozen or eaten by a polar bear or pack wolves

those would be the only dead zones in northern ontario that I know about

I think the only germans you'll attract up there would be germans who like to fish & hunt & camp in the remote wilderness away from largely populated areas

Re: German visitors to Canada
Start an annual German-themed festival, Oktoberfest maybe?

Co-sponsor with local/regional/German breweries and local businesses.
Start with drawing in local and regional folks,
then after it has grown a bit, advertise internationally.

Re: German visitors to Canada
A great idea, however the way our council and mayor done it was a new lady from Germany moves up in July she approaches council in December about an 8,000 expenditures for the taxpayers says she would like to market germany and in one meeting and a week later they said yes. There are over 20 existing tourist operators here most with 10 plus years, the town made no attempt to contact them and even after hearing the complaints of many went ahead with the idea. The known market for us here is local Canadian and American as well as southern ontario and manitoba

Re: German visitors to Canada
no we are way miles of north bay, I was saying why would germans want to come another eight hours north of north bay when they can have the bush and wilderness at places like north bay and more. They could have spent the money on marketing to our proven Canadian and American markets.

Re: German visitors to Canada
Our town opened a Jamboree on August long weekend did it for 12 years ran in the whole for 11 of those years costing taxpayer anywhere from 45,000 to 65,000 a year before they finally cancelled it. Brain of a shoelace, they started the Jamboree to cover the cost of operating a provincial park they took over around 15 years ago because the government was operating in the hole. So the town ran it and lost, they made the Jamboree and still lost. They still ran the park this year at a lost, can not understand when they are going to give it up. Put the shoelace around their necks and pull.

Re: German visitors to Canada
if your 4 hrs north or wawa I assume you're in Thunder Bay..

Theres really nothing up north here and we like it that way to some extent. We are a mix of rednecks and yuppies co-existing somewhat peacefully. We don't like coloured folk nor foreigners coming in and buying everything up.. If you Germans come up here, bring a car plant for us to work in, and you will be welcome... bring tourism? Wtf do we need germans to show us around our country for?
