Statistics Canada's Satellite Account of Nonprofit Institutions and Volunteering provides information on the economic size and scope of the non-profit sector. Overall, the non-profit sector's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) was $83 billion in 2004, or about 7% of Canada's total GDP. (The measure of economic activity in this report differs substantially from the methodology used in estimates of the cultural sector's economic impact.)
This report examines flexible management models for artists, collectives and small arts organizations, based on a literature review, funding program information as well as discussions with arts agency staff, arts foundation staff, artists, arts organizations, agents and producers.
Although awkwardly translated from the original French, this report contains important information about the management practices and the overall state of Aboriginal and culturally-diverse arts organizations in Canada.
