Hill Strategies: Artists + Cultural Workers, December 3, 2014

Artists and cultural workers in Canadian municipalities

Vol. 13 No. 1 December 3, 2014
Report funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council

Artists and Cultural Workers in Canadian Municipalities examines the number, incomes, and demographic characteristics of artists and cultural workers by municipal size.
For the purposes of the analysis, all Canadian municipalities were divided into four groups based on population:
1. All municipalities with a population below 50,000 (total population of 12.1 million, or 36% of the overall Canadian population).
2. 69 cities and towns with a population between 50,000 and 165,000 (total population of 6.2 million, or 19% of Canada).
3. 17 cities with a population between 175,000 and 470,000 (total population of 4.5 million, or 13% of Canada).
4. The 11 largest cities in Canada, each with a population of 500,000 or more (total population of 10.6 million, or 32% of Canada).
The municipalities were grouped based on the boundaries of census subdivisions, not metropolitan areas.
In addition to highlighting the demographic and economic differences by size of municipality, this report also provides key data on artists and cultural workers in each municipality for which there is reliable data.
