BC by the numbers 

The tourism sector contributed $5 billion (constant 1997 dollars) to the provincial GDP in 2002. By comparison, tourism’s contribution is significantly larger than mining and oil & gas extraction ($2.7 billion), and similar in size to the construction industry ($5.3 billion). It is a bit more than half the size of the forestry sector ($8.9 billion, including pulp and paper manufacturing).
