Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Canadian hotel industry reported all-time lows in the three key performance metrics during Q2 2020, according to data from STR. Compared with Q2 2019:
- Occupancy: -71.4% to 19.4%
- Average daily rate (ADR): -36.4% to CAD106.66
- Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -81.8% to CAD20.72
The absolute occupancy and RevPAR levels were the lowest for any quarter in STR’s Canada database. In absolute values, April was Canada’s lowest month of the quarter for each of the three metrics: occupancy (14.0%), ADR (CAD100.94) and RevPAR (CAD14.13). The country saw its lowest occupancy level during the week of 5-11 April, but has since reached a 30% level in the metric. Among the provinces and territories, Newfoundland and Labrador recorded the steepest decline in occupancy (-82.3% to 10.2%). British Columbia posted the largest drop in ADR (-42.0% to CAD116.92). Quebec registered the steepest decrease in RevPAR (-88.3% to CAD15.08).
