Ontario

Based on Statistics Canada’s product perspective, the direct economic impact of culture products was estimated at $25.0 billion in Ontario in 2017, equating to $1,775 per capita and 3.3% of provincial GDP. The direct impact per capita is higher in Ontario than in any other province. The culture employment estimate was 286,200 in 2017, or 3.9% of all jobs in the province.

Between 2010 and 2017, the GDP of culture products grew by 19% in Ontario. Stronger growth in the overall provincial economy resulted in a decrease in culture’s share of the provincial economy between 2010 and 2017 (from 3.6% to 3.3%).

The direct contribution of culture industries to GDP was $26.7 billion in Ontario in 2017, which represents $1,896 per capita or 3.5% of provincial GDP. In 2017, there were 300,400 jobs directly related to culture industries in Ontario, or 4.1% of the province’s jobs.

In Ontario, the GDP of culture industries ($26.7 billion) is larger than the value added of agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting ($7.4 billion), utilities ($14.6 billion), and accommodation and food services ($16.2 billion). However, the value added of culture is less than that of transportation and warehousing ($31.8 billion), educational services ($44.3 billion) and construction ($53.0 billion).

The PTCI also provides an estimate of the GDP of sports industries in 2017 ($3.2 billion, or 0.4% of the province’s GDP). The value added of culture ($26.7 billion) is more than eight times larger than the sports estimate.

 

Quebec

In 2017, the direct economic impact of culture products was estimated at $11.0 billion in Quebec, equalling $1,321 per capita or 2.8% of provincial GDP. The culture employment estimate was 166,100 in 2017, or 3.9% of all jobs in Quebec. The value added of culture products in Quebec is similar to the Canadian average (2.8% in Quebec and 2.7% nationally), while the employment impact is higher in Quebec (3.9%) than nationally (3.5%).

Between 2010 and 2017, the GDP of culture products increased by 6% in Quebec. Stronger growth in the overall provincial economy resulted in a decrease in culture’s share of the provincial economy between 2010 and 2017 (from 3.4% to 2.8%).

The direct contribution of culture industries to GDP was $12.3 billion in Quebec in 2017 ($1,479 per capita or 3.2% of provincial GDP). In 2017, there were 181,500 jobs directly related to culture industries in Quebec, or 4.3% of all jobs.

In Quebec, the GDP of culture industries ($12.3 billion) is larger than the value added of agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting ($6.7 billion) and accommodation and food services ($9.1 billion). However, the value added of culture is less than that of utilities ($13.7 billion), transportation and warehousing ($16.9 billion), educational services ($23.0 billion) and construction ($26.4 billion).

The PTCI also provides an estimate of the GDP of sports industries in 2017 ($1.1 billion, or 0.3% of the province’s GDP). The value added of culture ($12.3 billion) is more than 11 times larger than the sports estimate.
