Statistics Canada recently released Canada-level data on heritage institutions in 2007. The total revenues of all heritage organizations were $1.2 billion in 2007, a 14% increase from 2004 (not adjusted for inflation).
This report from Hill Strategies Research shows that public museums and art galleries generate increasing amounts from non-government sources. However, the report also finds that government revenues continue to represent the largest share of total revenues.
This recent report investigates the broad social impacts of cultural activities for individuals. It examines the relationship between four cultural activities (reading books, attending live performances, visiting art galleries and attending movie theatres) and social phenomena such as volunteering, donating, neighbourhood connections, sense of belonging and quality of life.
Other interesting themes explored at the Summit include:
- National Narrative
- Media Coverage and Publications
