Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will head to Jamaica after Christmas for a one-week vacation with his immediate family.
According to the Prime Minister’s Office, Trudeau will remain in constant contact with Ottawa during the trip and continue to be briefed and updated on issues.
The news has helped to cement Jamaica as one of the preferred travel destinations for the 2022-2023 winter tourist season, particularly those seeking to escape ice cold temperatures in the United States and Canada.
Last week, the Tourism Ministry revealed that the island’s 2022-2023 winter tourist season got off to its strongest start ever, as the island recorded over 40,000 visitors in the first week since it kicked off on December 15, with over 11,000 stopover visitors flying into the tourism mecca of Montego Bay on December 17.
“This start of the 2022-2023 winter tourist season is the strongest in the history of Jamaica,” Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett said in a statement.
“We were able to welcome, over the weekend, from December 15 to 18, a total of 42,000 visitors. That includes 37,000 stopover and 5,000 cruise visitors.
“We know that the market understands Jamaica, and we know that the market appreciates the quality of the product and the excellence of the experience that we offer,” he also said.
