Expedia also shared data on Canadians' interest in visiting Quebec destinations. After Quebec City and Mont-Tremblant, Canadians seem to want to travel to La Malbaie, Tadoussac, Montreal and Gaspésie — in that order.
The results were based on searches for trips that would take place between July 7 and September 30.
The report compared key indexes of attitudes toward LGBTQ2+ people across 34 countries. Canada ranked seventh based on social acceptance, sexual activity rights, civil union rights, marriage rights, adoption rights and military service rights, as well as anti-discrimination and gender identity laws.
Canada ranks seventh, after mostly European countries
The top five countries on the list were in Europe. Sweden, the Netherlands and Spain made the top three.
According to the report, Canada's provinces only introduced same-sex civil union rights in the early 2000s, while Sweden registered same-sex civil partnerships in 1995.
However, Canada was faster than Sweden to adopt gay marriage rights. Canada legalized same-sex marriage nationwide in 2005 — with some provinces legalizing it as early as 2003 — while Sweden legalized it in 2009.
Compared to Sweden's 94% social acceptance rating, 85% of Canadian society was found to be socially accepting of LGBTQ2+ communities.
Gender identity and anti-discrimination laws
Sweden, the Netherlands and Spain all have anti-discrimination laws for LGBTQ2+ people, the report shows.
The report says that in Spain, since 2007, all documents can be amended to a person's 'recognized gender.'
Comparatively, in Canada, transgender people have been able to change their gender and name (but not their sex) since 2017 — the same year Bill C-16 came into effect, making gender identity and expression a Constitutional right.
'Conversion therapy' has been illegal in Manitoba and Ontario since 2015, and Vancouver and Nova Scotia since 2018, according to the report.
In collaboration with the federal government, Canada's major airlines have agreed to suspend all flights to "sun destinations" after countless requests from Premier François Legault to tighten travel restrictions in Canada.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Friday that Air Canada, WestJet, Sunwing and Air Transat will "cancel air service" to all Caribbean destinations and Mexico starting on Sunday, January 31 until April 30.
These airlines, he said, are coordinating with customers currently in those destinations to return to Canada.
Incoming international passenger flights will also be limited to four airports: Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal.
The prime minister announced numerous travel restrictions on Friday, including mandatory testing and mandatory hotel stays for travellers returning to Canada. He said these measures would take effect "as soon as possible."
These international travellers will have to pay for the hotel stay themselves while they wait for their test results. Trudeau said it could cost them more than $2,000.
He also promised "significantly increased surveillance and enforcement" of quarantine rules once these travellers return home.
"By putting in place these tough measures now, we can look forward to a better time when we can all plan those vacations," said the prime minister.
