Ontario is a major force in Canadian culture industries. Firms within each culture industry in the province form clusters and cross-pollinate, generating employment and industrial growth in other culture and non-culture industries. In this respect, the Ontario Media Development Corporation published the new report, Profile of Selected Culture Industries in Ontario, which examines three culture industries in the province — publishing, sound recording, and film, video and audio-visual. The motion picture theatre industry and private radio and television broadcasting in Ontario were also examined in this report.
If the report analyzes recent trends in the supply of and demand for culture goods and services, it also examines labor force trends and characteristics, and government spending on each selected industry.
