Artists in Canada's Provinces and Territories Based on the 2006 Census

March 1, 2009

This report provides an analysis of artists residing in each province and territory in Canada, including brief profiles by number, discipline, earnings and selected demographics. Also included is information by province and territory on artists as a proportion of the labour force, and trends between 1991 and 2006.

This report is part of the Statistical Insights on the Arts series by Hill Strategies Research. It is based on data from the 2006 Census of Canada.

The Statistical Insights on the Arts series is funded by the Ontario Arts Council in partnership with the Department of Canadian Heritage and the Canada Council for the Arts as part of our shared commitment to making arts research available to inform the work of Canada’s arts community and educate the general public about Canada’s arts sector.
