Cultural Sector HR Study: Steering Committee meets in Montreal

posted on 2:45 PM, November 12, 2009
- Impact Report to be released - Focus Groups underway

The Cultural Sector HR Study is proceeding apace. In late September, the Steering Committee met in Montreal to review the draft of an early report from the consultants at the Conference Board of Canada entitled "The Effect of the Global Economic Recession on Canada's Creative Economy in 2009". This research documents what many in the sector know to be too true: traditional culture sector revenue streams such as business advertising, endowments, and municipal funding have been eroded due to the weak economy and the steep decline in stock markets - and cultural industries and cultural workers have felt the pinch. The report will be released in early November.

The Conference Board has also begun a series of 14 Focus Groups to seek the sector's views and opinions on the HR issues affecting their industries/disciplines. They met with cultural sector workers and employers and other stakeholders in Edmonton and Winnipeg in October. In November, they will hold Focus Groups in Toronto, Quebec City, Montreal, Halifax, St. John's, Saskatoon and Vancouver. In early December, they will hold the final Focus Group in Ottawa. If you would like to participate in one of these Focus Groups and have not received an invitation, please contact CHRC's Executive Director Susan Annis directly at sannis@culturalhrc.ca
