COOLIDGE — Although Pinal County is feeling the loss of Canadian snowbirds this year — both residents and tourists — there is some room for optimism. While the pandemic suppressed the economy this year, could a snowbird “boom” be in order down the road?
Glenn Williamson, CEO of the Canada Arizona Business Council, speculated that both business and marketing partnerships implied an increase in Canadian investment in the region, and that an uptick in both snowbirds and full-time residents would follow.
In fact, while only 30% of residing Canadians made it down to Arizona this year, Canadian companies were still establishing ties to the area.
