Cheap Montreal hostels: 'How to improve travel and tourism in Canada'
Canadian governments have been told that they will have to take immediate action to ease tax, regulatory and other burdens on its industry, a new study by the National Travel and Tourism Coalition (NTTC) has suggested.

There are four areas which have been set out in the report, which could then lead to the country having more appeal for people to book some cheap Montreal hostels and witness some of the spectacular sights on offer.

First, the NTTC suggests that the growth of travel and tourism in Canada could be aided immensely with the introduction of a fair tax regime.

Next, a level playing field for overseas and trans-border travel and tourism could be set up with the US to aid the number of people entering the country for a well-deserved break, with policies also been recommended to increase the global competitiveness for Canada.

Finally, this industry could also be helped significantly by a large labour force being available to the nation, of which skilful candidates will make up this workload.

Speaking on the state of the nation's travel and tourism sector, David Goldstein, president and chief executive of the Tourism Industry Association of Canada, said: "If we are to compete globally and regain our position as a top ten destination in the world, the policy-based impediments that have been built in to our sector need to be addressed."

There has been some good news for the Canadian travel sector recently though, after Montreal posted some of its best tourism figures in a decade over the past summer.

People have been looking to snap up a room in a cheap Montreal hostel to witness the return of the Formula One Grand Prix du Canada, as well as a more stable economy than previous years being citied as another reason for the positive figures.
