Yukon

The direct contribution of culture industries to GDP was $48 million in the Yukon in 2010, which represents 2.1% of territorial GDP. The value added of culture industries in the Yukon, as a proportion of the territory’s overall GDP, is well below the national average (3.4%). Culture industries in the Yukon represent 0.1% of the Canadian GDP of culture industries. The largest contributors to the GDP of culture industries in the Yukon in 2010 were written and published works ($7 million), visual and applied arts (also $7 million), and audiovisual and interactive media ($6 million).

In 2010, there were 760 jobs directly related to culture industries in the Yukon, or 3.6% of total employment. This percentage is also below the national average (4.1%). The Yukon jobs total represents 0.1% of nationwide employment in culture industries.

In the Yukon, the GDP of culture industries is larger than the value added of utilities ($30 million) but less than the value added of transportation and warehousing ($62 million), accommodation and food services ($68 million), construction ($266 million), and mining, quarrying, and oil and gas extraction ($270 million).

The Culture Satellite Account also provides an estimate of the GDP of sports industries in 2010 ($5 million, or 0.2% of the territory’s GDP). The value added of culture ($48 million) is about nine times larger than the sports estimate.

 

Northwest Territories

The direct contribution of culture industries to GDP was $66 million in the Northwest Territories in 2010 (1.4% of territorial GDP). The value added of culture industries in the Northwest Territories, as a proportion of the territory’s overall GDP, is well below the national average (3.4%). Culture industries in the Northwest Territories represent 0.1% of the national GDP of culture industries. The largest contributors to the GDP of culture industries in the Northwest Territories in 2010 were written and published works ($8 million), audiovisual and interactive media (also $8 million), and visual and applied arts ($7 million).

In 2010, there were 740 jobs directly related to culture industries in the Northwest Territories, or 2.9% of total employment. This percentage is also below the national average (4.1%). The Northwest Territories jobs total represents 0.1% of nationwide employment in culture industries.

In the Northwest Territories, the GDP of culture industries is equal to the value added of utilities ($66 million) but less than the value added of accommodation and food services ($82 million), transportation and warehousing ($220 million), construction ($342 million), and mining, quarrying, and oil and gas extraction ($1.8 billion).

The Culture Satellite Account also provides an estimate of the GDP of sports industries in 2010 ($7 million, or 0.2% of the territory’s GDP). The value added of culture ($66 million) is about nine times larger than the sports estimate.

 

Nunavut

The direct contribution of culture industries to GDP was $56 million in Nunavut in 2010, or 2.9% of territorial GDP. The value added of culture industries in Nunavut, as a proportion of the territory’s overall GDP, is below the national average (3.4%) but is the highest level among the three territories. Culture industries in Nunavut represent 0.1% of the Canadian GDP of culture industries.

In 2010, there were 530 jobs directly related to culture industries in Nunavut, or 4.2% of total employment. This percentage is essentially equal to the national average (4.1%). The Nunavut jobs total represents 0.1% of nationwide employment in culture industries.

In Nunavut, the GDP of culture industries is larger than the value added of accommodation and food services ($22 million) and transportation and warehousing ($43 million). On the other hand, the value added of culture is less than that of utilities ($75 million), construction ($232 million), and mining, quarrying, and oil and gas extraction ($311 million).

The Culture Satellite Account also provides an estimate of the GDP of sports industries in 2010 ($5 million, or 0.3% of the territory’s GDP). The value added of culture ($56 million) is ten times larger than the sports estimate.
