Abstract

Canada is made up of ten provinces and three territories. For the most part it is a fairly landlocked country. With this being said there are a few major islands that this research will focus on: Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, and Vancouver Island (BC). This research attempts with the use of library resource to find out if there is a significant extra cost in travelling to major islands in Canada, and if the extra cost can affect, more specifically deter the amount of tourists that could potentially travel to them. The main purpose of the study is to report on challenges of transport and impact on tourism to the island areas. The research will compare and contrast costs to travelling to these islands from primary socio-economic hubs in Canada. Key words: Tourism, Travel, Transport, Islands, Canada Introduction
