Visitation to the Terry Fox Visitor Information center in June 2009 saw a 10% decline over June 2008, slipping to 3495 from 3888 the previous year.
Most of the decline was from domestic (-10%) and overseas travel (-33%). domestic visitors declined from 3075 to 2780 while overseas traffic plummeted from 224 to 150.
U.S. traffic, however was not as seriously affected, dropping only 4%, from 589 in 2008 to 565 in 2009.
However, increased web usage and visitor magazine circulation may indicate different sources of information gathering habits for visitors to the community.
