Arts & Culture

Arts and culture inspire us, help fuel innovation and are critical components of a global city.

Why it matters:

Arts and culture contribute $11.3 billion annually to the city’s GDP:

    - In 2013, film, television and other screen-based media production spending exceeded $1billion for the third year in a row. á

      Screen-based animation spending increased by $15 million to exceed $100 million for the first time. 

The City increased its cultural spending by 1.1% in the 2014 budget:

    - The per capita municipal investment in culture is now slightly over $22 (the goal, set more than a decade ago, is $25 per

       capita in direct arts funding by 2016). Montreal spends $55 per capita on arts funding.
