Skift Take

Citizens from each of the border side travel more for vacation than business, but overnight business trips have increased more than the number of vacations in the past year.

Statistics Canada says overnight business travel to and from Canada increased at a faster pace than pleasure travel in the first quarter this year.

Canadian travellers made 673,000 overnight business trips to the United States in the first quarter, up 12.3 per cent from the first quarter of 2011.

Meanwhile, Canadian residents took nearly 3.3 million pleasure trips to the United States, up 9.9 per cent.
