Vacation patterns of French and English Canadians Academic Article uri icon


  • The objective of the study reported here was to identify whether or not French and English Canadians differed in their vacation patterns and, if so, to investigate the relative influence of culture compared to socioeconomics antecedents upon those differences. Six vacation travel characteristics were investigated under separate subhypotheses: availability of vacation time and use of that time for vacation trips; number of weeks of vacation time during the previous 12 months; number of vacation trips taken during the previous 12 months; and length, distance, and cost of respondents' most recent vacation trips. 1988.
