1.
Government-owned or -operated institutions (except schools, colleges and universities) are part of the governance, funding and professional support domain, even if their activity falls within the scope of one of the other sub-domains. For example, a government-operated library would be included under the governance, funding and professional support (culture) domain and not under the libraries sub-domain.
2.
The heritage and libraries domain includes only private institutions. All government-owned/operated institutions (federal, provincial or municipal) are included in the governance, funding and professional support (culture) domain.
3.
The multi domain includes culture industries that are associated with more than one culture domain: the culture portion of convention and trade show organizers; manufacturing and reproducing unrecorded media; lessors of non-financial intangible assets (except copyrighted works); Internet broadcasting and web search portal industries. These culture industries are all linked to more than one culture domain but cannot be easily allocated to a single domain; therefore, they have been aggregated together. As of 2017, publishers publishing exclusively on the Internet were moved from the multi domain to their associated subdomain within written and published works.
