Canadian RV and Camping Sectors Lobby in Ottawa
 April 6, 2017
 Representatives from the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) of Canada and the Canadian Camping and RV Council (CCRVC) are on Parliament Hill today (April 6) to discuss the need for increased investments in tourism policies and infrastructure upgrades and the need for implementation of a fair tax regime for campgrounds across Canada.

As this year marks Canada’s 150th anniversary, the RVDA of Canada and the CCRVC would like to ensure that individuals and families are able to explore Canada’s natural heritage both throughout this camping season and for generations to come, according to a release.

RVing and camping in Canada has a considerable economic impact; the manufacturing, purchasing, servicing and use of recreation vehicles contributes billions to the Canadian economy each year. In fact, in 2011, the total economic activity associated with the Canadian recreation vehicle industry reached $14.5 billion. There are over 4,231 campgrounds across Canada, each offering a unique experience for Canadians and international visitors.

The promotion of the RV sector and proper infrastructure in our existing parks are crucial to the growth of the RVing and camping industries, as well as a prosperous Canadian tourism sector. The RVing industry contributes billions to the national economy, but the more than 4,321 campgrounds across Canada require infrastructural improvements in order to accommodate new camping and RV technologies. As stated by RVDA Chairman Sam Parks, “RVing and camping are large components of tourism, both internally and externally. There is a crucial need for this to be recognized by Destination Canada as a viable growth area for tourism in Canada.”

A fair tax regime and investment in the necessary infrastructural updates for small businesses would benefit the family-owned campgrounds and RV dealerships that enable Canadians and visitors alike to experience the all that Canada has to offer. At present, campgrounds face an approximate 300% increase in their tax bills. Robert Trask, Chairman of the CCRVC, explains this will result in campgrounds facing “a larger tax rate than major billion dollar corporations which is dumbfounding.”

Canadian RVing and Camping Week 2017 – “The start of the 2017 RV & Camping Summer Season”

The Canadian Camping and RV Council and Go RVing Canada have partnered again to host the 3rd annual Canadian RVing and Camping Week. This is an opportunity for Canadians to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday and enjoy the great outdoors and the RV and camping lifestyle.

From May 23 to 28, 2017 participating campgrounds across Canada will celebrate everything that makes camping and RVing so popular with activities, discounted camping rates, and a special fundraising initiative for Make-A-Wish® Canada. Fundraising last year raised $20,000 to help grant wishes for children with critical illnesses.

This year in addition to raising funds through the well-known Make-A-Wish star program, we’re hoping to host the largest simultaneous marshmallow roast with campgrounds across the country – a fun initiative for campers and a great way to help raise funds for Make-A-Wish® Canada.

Canadian RVing and Camping Week will culminate in a special offer for two-nights camping at participating campgrounds (May 26-27/Fri-Sat).

As well as the weekend offer, many campgrounds are offering a promotional stay of “Five Nights for the price of Four” May 23–27, 2017 (Tues-Sat).
