Excellent news – the Canadian Artists and Content Creators Economic Survey has already gathered over 3,000 responses!

Thank you for your help disseminating the survey and promoting it within your networks. The survey period has been extended and will now be accessible online until July 2, 2021.

We invite you to share this with your membership! In our experience, it appears that a direct email to members and social media promotion are most effective to spread the word, as well as word of mouth to friends, family, and colleagues.

Let’s keep the momentum going and reach as many Canadian artists and content creators as possible. To deliver meaningful disaggregated data specific to creative sectors, regions and/or communities, our goal is to double the current participation.


  • The objective of this survey is to help create an updated portrait of the artistic and creative community in Canada. The data gathered through this survey will serve the important function of informing future and existing Canadian Heritage policies and programs, ensuring the Department continues to be responsive to the creative sector’s reality.
  • Widespread participation today means more detailed data will be available to make public for analysis in the near future, as we all make plans towards recovery. This is why we are especially grateful for your participation and help disseminating this survey.

We look forward to hearing more from the artists and content creators you represent and work with!
