Digging Into The Numbers

Since October 2013, CAPACOA has been digging into years of statistics collected by Canadian Heritage. With roughly 600 clients of the Canada Arts Presentation Fund (CAPF), there is a wealth of information that is available. Here are some of the findings:

  • Canadian presenting organizations pay artistic fees estimated at more than $200 million per year.
  • CAPF clients paid an average of $177,000 in artist fees.
  • Considering reported expenses between 2008-2012, direct fees paid to artists averaged $107.9 million. Of this, $77.5 million were paid to Canadian artists annually and $30.4 million to foreign artists.
  • CAPF clients report average attendance exceeding 20 million per year.
