Provincial Profiles of Arts, Culture and Heritage Activities in 2010

March 1, 2012

This report examines the frequency of participation of Canadians 15 years or older in specific arts, culture and heritage activities in 2010 by province. Activities include: attending live performances; visiting art galleries and other museums; visiting heritage sites and other heritage organizations; reading a newspaper, magazine or book; watching movies or videos; and listening to recorded music. Where comparable data are available, trends in participation between 1992 and 2010 are highlighted. In addition, key statistics for Canada and each province are provided for the years 1992, 1998, 2005 and 2010.

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