Changing tourism and growing seasons

As climate change is expected to bring longer summers and milder falls, there is potential for a longer growing and summer tourism season, but also a shorter winter tourism season. These sectors are important to the Newfoundland and Labrador economy. Agriculture, forestry, and logging accounted for approximately $177 million of the provincial gross domestic product in 2013, while accommodations and food services accounted for just over $535 million. Together, these two sectors accounted for approximately 7% of total employment in the province in 2013.
