3 Executive Summary This document is an analysis and interpretation of the results of the 2006 to 2008 Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Regional Tourism Profiles. It has been prepared by Lanark County Tourism, and its purpose is to display a visual figure of statistical results from 2006 to 2008 for easy interpretation. This document highlights tourism trends within Lanark County. These results help to formulate and support tourism initiatives, future actions, and to maximize success. We can share the information with our municipalities, stakeholders, members and local business owners. The following statements offer an overview of the Tourism scenario in the County of Lanark. Visitation A True Tourism Destination! Lanark County attracts over 800,000 visitors each year. Pleasure travel still exceeds visiting friends and relatives, which qualifies that Lanark County is indeed a travel destination. People are staying longer! There has been a steady increase in visitation from other parts of Ontario, and more overnight stays, generating over 50 million dollars per year for the local economy. For example, overnight visits increased by 42,000 people between 2007 and More International Visitors! A traditional destination for Ottawa residents with demonstrated visitation primarily from Ontario (55,000 people per year), we also see growth in overnight visits from Overseas (3000 people) and U.S. Visitors (2000 people) compared to the previous year. Out-of-Province visitors account for over 50% of tourism revenues to Lanark County. Top 10 Geographic Markets Out of 891,000 visitors in 2008, most were adults coming from near markets, specifically: % Ottawa Carleton % Lanark County (an increase of 65,000 people over 2007) % Leeds & Grenville (an increase of 16,000 people over 2007) % Frontenac County % Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry % Pennsylvania (an increase of 2000 visitors over 2007) % Toronto % Victoria County % New York State % Hastings County Reasons for Visiting Outdoor recreation is still our biggest draw at 26.3% of total visitation. The most dramatic areas of growth for Ontario visitors to Lanark County are Hunting and Skiing. Compared to 2007, Lanark County attracted 14,000 new hunters and 10,000 new skiers/snowboarders in The Top 5 reasons for visiting Lanark County are as follows: 1. 13% Boating % Fishing % Provincial/Nature Parks % Historic Sites % Sports Events, tied with 3.6% Golfing Page 3 of 14

4 Visitor Spending Total visitor spending in Lanark County generates well over 50 million dollars annually. Although visitation and length of stay increased in 2008, Ontarians spent less money on rental cars, accommodation and other retail. All other types of spending have increased. The largest revenue generator is food & beverage. When compared to previous years, the most recent statistics demonstrate a few important trends: 1. Visitors are spending more than double on public transportation Public Transportation to Lanark County increased by nearly 1 million dollars in Visitors are spending significantly more on local transportation 40,000 dollars more in 2008 compared to Visitors are buying more food & beverage through retail than at restaurants This is a significant change, a reverse situation in Visitors are spending more on recreation and entertainment An increase of 2.5 million dollars over the previous year. 5. Visitors are buying more clothing in Lanark County An increase of over 1.5 million dollars since Tourism in Lanark County is a healthy, thriving and sustainable industry; perhaps the most important economic driver for the region.

The Ottawa-Carlton Region was Lanark County s largest market, with 36.8% of total visitors travelling from there.
