Cultural Statistics Strategy

The Creative City Network of Canada is pleased to continue this initiative in 2016. In 2013, the CCNC became the coordinating body for municipal government participation in the Cultural Statistics Strategy.

The Cultural Statistics Strategy (CSS) is a partnership of national, provincial, and municipal partners. The initiative is led by the Department of Canadian Heritage and housed in Statistics Canada’s Cultural Satellite Account. The purpose of the partnership is to safeguard the collection of cultural data at a critical time in the national narrative regarding data. While there is an abundance of data being produced, there are fewer reliable sources collecting and making it available. The CSS not only accesses the most reliable and rigorous statistics on culture, available through the Canadian System of National Accounts, it also cultivates a conversation and consensus between federal, provincial and municipal cultural partners about how and what to collect.

As it grows, the Cultural Satellite Account will become a unique and invaluable resource to the sector enabling not only a benchmark for valuing economic impact, but also for discovering new insights into how culture works in this country, in our regions, and in our specific cities.

“Good data is a key pillar in making the case for culture. Through CCNC’s participation in the Cultural Statistics Strategy, municipalities get direct access to the most up-to-date cultural statistics in the country, and biannual meetings with a peer research group to test new ideas” - Elena Bird, CCNC, Board Chair

  • The Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) has announced the release of the first Culture Satellite Account (CSA) Report, which provides the most precise and reliable data available on the economic impact of culture (inclusive of the arts and heritage) and sport in Canada.

    This paper articulates the Canadian Culture Satellite Account (CSA) developed by Statistics Canada. The Canadian CSA provides measures of the economic importance of culture (inclusive of the arts and heritage) and sport in Canada in terms of output, gross domestic product and employment, for reference year 2010.

    The development of the Canadian Culture Satellite Account is funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage and its partners, including the CCNC and some of its member municipalities.

  • On June 9th Statistics Canada released the Provincial and Territorial Culture Satellite Account.

    This publication provides a detailed breakdown of the economic weight of different cultural industries for each province and territory.  The data comes from the first ever Provincial and Territorial Culture Satellite Account which measures the economic importance of culture and sport in terms of output, GDP and employment (number of jobs) for every province and territory.  The PTCSA is an extension of the new Culture Satellite Account (CSA).
