Volunteers in Arts and Culture Organizations in Canada in 2007

March 1, 2010

This report provides estimates of volunteer activity in arts and culture organizations in Canada, including information on the number of volunteers, volunteer hours, the average time volunteered, and types of volunteer activity. The report also provides a demographic profile of arts and culture volunteers, identifies volunteer motivations and barriers, and provides context on the competition facing arts and culture organizations in attracting volunteers. Some provincial and regional information is also available, including data for Ontario.

This report is part of the Statistical Insights on the Arts series by Hill Strategies Research. It is based on Statistics Canada’s 2007 Canada Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating.

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.
