Provincial and Territorial Culture Satellite Account, 2010
The Provincial and Territorial Culture Satellite Account (PTCSA) measures the economic importance of culture and sport to provincial and territorial economies by estimating the production of culture and sport goods and services and their contribution to output, GDP, and jobs. The PTCSA follows the 2011 Canadian Framework for Culture Statistics (CFCS) and is rooted in the Canadian System of National Accounts (CSNA). The PTCSA extends the accounting framework, concepts and methods of the national CSA to the provinces and territories.
This report discusses the scope of the study and highlights the results of the PTCSA by province and territory for reference year 2010. The appendices include key definitions, methodology and data sources and detailed tables showing culture and sport GDP, output and jobs. A list of industries and commodities classified as culture or sport is also included in the appendices.
