Diversity and Arts Attendance by Canadians in 2010

March 1, 2014

This report examines diversity and arts attendance in Canada, including attendance by: visible minority Canadians; first-generation immigrants; Aboriginal people; Canadians with a disability; youth; seniors; and members of official language minority communities. Attendance by these population groups is analyzed for a range of arts activities including attendance at art galleries, theatre performances, popular music performances, classical music performances, and cultural festivals.

This report is part of the Statistical Insights on the Arts series by Hill Strategies Research. It is based on data from Statistics Canada’s 2010 General Social Survey.

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.
