Artists in Large Canadian Cities Based on the 2006 Census

September 1, 2009

This report provides an analysis of artists living in 93 large Canadian cities, including the number of artists, artists’ earnings, and trends between 1991 and 2006. The report highlights cities with particularly high concentrations of artists. Brief profiles of these cities by province or region are also provided, including information for Ontario.

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 to educate the general public about Canada’s arts sector.
