Release of the Culture Satellite Account

Dear colleagues,

I’d like to share with you some important information that is being released today on arts, culture, heritage and sport in Canada.

Today, Statistics Canada released data on how important culture really is to the economy of Canada. It’s the first time ever Canadians will have such reliable data. The economic data comes from the Culture Satellite Account (CSA), a precise and reliable source using the most rigorous and transparent methodology to date to measure the economic importance and activity of arts, culture, heritage and sport in Canada.
