Consumer Spending on Culture in Canada, the Provinces and 12 Metropolitan Areas in 2008

November 1, 2010

This report examines the spending of Canadians on cultural goods and services, including total cultural spending on culture, per capita spending amounts, and changes in spending between 1997 and 2008. It also compares and profiles cultural spending in the provinces, as well as in twelve metropolitan areas.

This report is part of the Statistical Insights on the Arts series by Hill Strategies Research. It is based on Statistics Canada’s Survey of Household Spending.

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.
