Provincial and municipal investment in culture in Canada increased by about 30% between 2003 and 2010.

Hamilton-based Hill Strategies analyzed data from Statistics Canada and found that Federal cultural spending also increased by eight per cent during the same time period.

Ottawa spends about 40 per cent of all cultural investment at about $4.2-billion.

On a per capita basis, federal spending in Ontario was $109, below the Canadian average of $123. Provincial spending was $63, well below the provincial average of $90.

The statistics also show that Toronto’s per capita spending on culture was the least of Canada’s five largest cities at $19. Montreal spent the most at $55.
