Finances of Public Museums and Art Galleries in Canada in 2006-07

November 1, 2008

Finances of Public Museums and Art Galleries in Canada in 2006-07, the 25th report in the Statistical Insights on the Arts series from Hill Strategies Research, shows that public museums and art galleries generate increasing amounts from non-government sources.

The report examines the situation of non-profit museums and art galleries in Canada, based on the 2006-2007 Business for the ArtsAnnual Survey of Public Museums and Art Galleries. A total of 113 Canadian museums and galleries participated in the survey, including 52 public art galleries, 38 public museums, 12 university-affiliated art galleries or museums, and 11 artist-run centres. Organizations responding to the Business for the Arts survey are based in all 10 provinces and the Yukon.

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.
