Canadians stayed close to home in January Statistics Canada says Canadians made 5.5 million trips abroad in January, down 0.4% from December. Travel to the United States rose 0.2% in January to 4.8 million trips, but this hike was outweighed by a drop in trips overseas. Canadians made 769,000 trips to countries other than the United States in January, down 4.3% from December and the lowest level since December 2011. Travel to Canada remained unchanged at 2.1 million trips in January, as an increase in trips from the United States offset a decrease from overseas countries. More than 1.7 million visitors came to Canada from the United States, up 0.2% from December. Visits to Canada by overseas travelers declined 1.1% to 387,000.
