More than $84 billion.

That’s how much creators — artists, designers and the traditionally recognized arts and cultural industries of new media, broadcasting, film, publishing and music — contribute to Canada’s economy every year.

It’s a lot of wealth. With the right amount of nurturing and the support of public policy, our creators can engage new knowledge and invention across a wide range of disciplines.

Join Canada’s university presidents — as well as leading figures from the cultural, private and public sectors — in exploring how culture is key to the nation’s innovation agenda and economic success.
