Did you know that Culture and Sport add $624.6M to the New Brunswick economy?

Nationally, culture accounted for 2.8% of Canada's total Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and 652,406 jobs.

Culture also contributes greatly to our quality of life. By participating in shared cultural experiences, our communities are more vibrant.



The Canadian Culture Satellite Account (CSA) measures the economic importance of culture and sport to the Canadian economy by estimating the value of the production of culture and sport goods and services and their contribution to output, Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and jobs. Statistics Canada leads the development of the CSA, while the Department of Canadian Heritage manages a consortium of funding partners inclusive of all provinces and territories. The Government of New Brunswick has been a partner in this effort since the onset.

The Canadian CSA will allow governments, stakeholders, professional organizations, and industry who use culture statistics to understand how economic issues impact growth in the culture sector, as well as its economic value.
