Introduction

The Department of Canadian Heritage is pleased to present the third iteration of the Government of Canada Survey of Heritage Institutions. The 2017 survey captured financial and operating data on not-for-profit heritage institutions in Canada for the 2015 data year, as well as building and capital infrastructure data for the 2017 data year.

The survey is conducted to provide aggregate data to governments and cultural associations in order to gain a better understanding of not-for-profit heritage institutions and to aid in the development of national and provincial/territorial policies and programs. The results from this sample survey are extrapolated to provide national and provincial/territorial estimates for the approximately 2700 not-for-profit heritage institutions across the country.

The 2017 survey captured data from 1820 heritage institutions and sites, which is approximately 68% of the entire not-for-profit heritage sector (including 91% of those with operating budgets of $1 million or more). The wealth of data received from the latest survey allows all levels of governments, associations and stakeholders to obtain a broader and more detailed understanding of the heritage sector.

The survey has a number of core indicators that are always measured (i.e. revenue sources, number of visits etc.), though as in previous years, there is a segment of the survey that is allocated to capturing new information on operational activities and timely subject matter. This portion of the survey is used in a rotational series (i.e. capture questions every third/fourth survey) allowing more questions over time, while reducing survey fatigue. Back in 2015 (2013 data year), the survey collected data on the types and numbers of artefacts, as well as the digitization of those artefacts and their availability on-line. This year's 2017 survey collected data on gender, age, visible minorities and distribution of careers throughout the heritage workforce. It also collected data on the current state of heritage buildings and their capital infrastructure and any future planning for building or capital infrastructure projects, such as facility repairs or expansion, upgrades for storage, curatorial spaces and visitor experience.

(Note: The 2013 data and 2011 data have been slightly revised for greater accuracy. The newly revised data is included in this report, allowing for accurate comparison of each data year. Only the revised data available in this report should be used for year over year comparisons).

Highlights

Revenue and expenditures

Not-for-profit heritage institutions in Canada generated over $2.5 billion in revenue in 2015, an approximate 23% increase over 2011.

The vast majority of the sector's revenue was generated in four provinces. Ontario accounted for $1.1 billion (43%), Quebec $619 million (25%), Alberta $236 million (9%) and British Columbia $225 million (9%).

When breaking down the data by types of heritage institutions, museums generated most of the revenue in the sector, contributing over $1.1 billion (44%) in 2015, followed by art galleries at $559 million (22%), archives at $368 million (15%), zoos and botanical gardens at $333 million (13%), and historic sites at $145 million (6%).

Unearned revenue in the sector has progressively risen from $1.4 billion in 2011 to $1.6 billion in 2015 (15% increase), but has accounted for a smaller percentage of overall revenue year after year (64% of total revenue in 2015, down from 68% of total revenue in 2011). The same trend is true when considering government funding. Combined, all three levels of government contributed approximately $1.3 billion in 2015, which increased from $1.1 billion in 2011 (15% increase), yet government funding has accounted for a smaller percentage of overall revenue in 2015 (50%) than in 2011 (53%). The remaining portion of unearned revenue comes from the private sector, in the form of donations, and to a lesser extent, interest and investments. Donations in the heritage sector have increased over the last five years to $320 million in 2015, while interest and investments increased to $36 million, accounting for nearly 13% and 1 % of all revenue respectively.

Earned revenue in the sector has increased by 38% over the last 5 years, from $665 million in 2011 to $918 million in 2015. Earned revenue now accounts for over 36% of all revenue, an increase from 2011, when it accounted for only 32%. The majority of earned revenue in 2015 is derived from sales of goods and services, which includes over-the-counter sales in gift shops, cafeterias, and other outlets. Those sales accounted for $285 million (11%) of all revenue, followed by admission fees at $242 million (10%) and fundraising at $136 million (5%). Fundraising has experienced the largest growth of all earned revenue, increasing nearly 93% since 2011. This demonstrates the persistent efforts that not-for-profit heritage institutions have made to generate new funding.

Roughly 50% of heritage institutions charged admission fees in 2015, which has been the status quo for the sector over the years. The average admission fee for an adult in 2015 was $9.91, an increase of approximately $2.31 from 2011 when the average fee was $7.60.

Overall, heritage sector operating costs in 2015 reached $2.4 billion, an increase of $424 million (22%) from 2011. Compensation and wages generally represent the bulk of the sectors costs, totalling over $992 million or 41% of all expenditures. The data on compensation and wages does not include services rendered by volunteers. The next three major expenses for heritage institutions overall are other operating expenditures (19%), occupancy costs (11%), and amortization of capital assets (9%).

The heritage sector posted a revenue over expenditure of 5.3% in 2015, which increased slightly from 4.5% in 2011.

Employment

The heritage sector employed over 36,300 people in 2015, a 15% increase over 2011. Part-time employment comprised the bulk of the work force (over 18,900) and experienced the largest increase since 2011 (2,537 new employees). Full-time employees numbered just over 12,500 in 2015, an increase of roughly 1,020 new employees over 2011, while staffing of contract workers numbered approximately 4880 in 2015, an additional 1,082 employees over the same time period.

The 2017 survey captured data on workforce demographics, such as gender, age, and visible minorities. The 2017 survey also captured the distribution of occupations in the heritage workforce.

The latest survey data indicates that, overall, the heritage sector full-time and part-time workforce is predominantly made up of more females (66%) than males (34%). British Columbia has the largest difference between female (75%) and male (25%) employees of any province or territory. When isolating the data by type of institution, museums have the largest difference between female (68%) and male (32%) employees.

Nearly one third of the heritage sector workforce is 45 years of age or older. Overall, the age breakdown of full and part-time employees in the heritage sector is as follows: approximately 31% are under 25 years of age, 37% are between the ages of 25 to 44, while 24% are between the ages of 45 to 59 and almost 8% are 60 years of age and over. The percentages vary significantly when isolated by province/territory or by type of institution. For example, in Prince Edward Island the percentage of employees who are 60 years of age or older is nearly 14%, whereas in Saskatchewan it is approximately 6%. In museums across the country, approximately 9% of employees are over the age of 60, while at zoos and botanical gardens it is only 3%. On the flip side, the workforce at zoos and botanical gardens are predominately under the age of 25 (nearly 63%), whereas for archives, it is only 6%.

Overall, the percentage of visible minorities in the heritage sector is 4%, but that figure varies considerably between each province and territory. At one end of the country, in Newfoundland and Labrador, approximately 2% of the heritage workforce is composed of visible minorities, while in Saskatchewan it is over 13%. Historic sites have the highest per capita percentage of visible minorities in its workforce (approximately 6%) compared to any other type of heritage institution.

Heritage institutions employ a range of staff with expertise in various fields, performing functions such as curatorial and conservation activities, facilities maintenance and security. Specified occupations with the highest percentage of full-time and part-time employees in the heritage sector at the national level are education/programming and engagement (17%), followed by administration/management (15%), and gift shop/catering (10%). The occupations with the lowest percentage of employees at the national level are curatorial/research or scientist (6%), conservation/preservation (4%) and digital/IT (3%). Fifteen percent of employees are categorized as having multiple job roles. The percentage of staff working in a specific occupation varies considerably by province/territory and by type of institution.

As demand on the heritage sector increases with the growing Canadian population and the expansion of domestic and international tourism, so do the expectations of its workforce to protect and make accessible the increasing list of significant artefacts and records collected and maintained throughout the country. To help achieve their mandates, heritage institutions rely heavily on volunteers. This is especially true in institutions with smaller budgets. In 2015, the heritage sector received assistance from over 115,650 volunteers. Contributing over 6.6 million hours, volunteers provided a wide range of essential services, while saving the heritage sector millions of dollars. To put these numbers into perspective, 6.6 million volunteer hours equates to approximately 3,200 full-time equivalent positions, and if one were to apply only a minimum wage salary to that equation (in 2015, the average minimum wage in Canada was approximately $10.42) it would total nearly $70 million in savings.

Attendance and membership

Attendance figures for all types of heritage institutions have been steadily increasing over the last 5 years, reaching a record 75.3 million physical visits in 2015 (up 34% from 2011). Museums received the bulk of those visits, topping 31.5 million, followed by historic sites with 15.4 million and art galleries with 14.1 million. At the provincial and territorial level, Quebec received the majority of visits, with over 24.3 million to all heritage institutions, followed by Ontario with 19.4 million and British Columbia, 11 million.

A growing online presence has allowed heritage institutions to reach new audiences and provide digital access to a vast treasure of preserved records and artefacts. Online access to these institutions is becoming increasingly utilized, as is shown in the latest survey data. There were over 203 million online visits to all heritage institutions in 2015, a substantial increase of 52% from 2011 (approximately 134 million online visits). The three institution types to receive the majority of online visits were museums (89.5 million), archives (44.6 million) and art galleries (41.6 million). Museums and art galleries have experienced the largest growth of online visits, up 38.5 million (75%) and 22.3 million (117%) respectively since 2011.

Memberships to all heritage institutions reached over 1.8 million members in 2015, an increase of approximately 14% over 2011. This would indicate that approximately 5% of the Canadian population was a member of a heritage institution in 2015 (Note: Statistics Canada data indicates the population in Canada was 35.8 million in 2015. CANSIM, table 051-0001). Museums had the highest subscription of members, totalling 681,483 (up 15% in the last 5 years), followed by art galleries with 555,719 members (up 39% in the last 5 years), and zoos and botanical gardens with 364,211 members (up 4% in the last 5 years).

Education is a major function of all heritage institutions. They provide an opportunity to see and learn new things, and play a role in shaping and encouraging younger generations within their communities. School boards across the country realize this potential, so it is not surprising that organized trips to these institutions have been increasing over the last few years. In 2015, the number of school groups visiting heritage institutions reached 133,941 (approximately 6.7 million visits by students), an overall increase of nearly 16% over 2011. The 3 most frequented types of institutions by school groups were museums (59%), followed by art galleries (20%) and historic sites (10%). While school group visitation numbers to museums, art galleries, historic sites and archives are up, the latest trend also shows that such visits to zoos and botanical garden are on a slight decline, down from 13,838 in 2011 to 11,629 in 2015 (a decrease of 16% or 110,450 students).

Exhibitions

Exhibitions help impart knowledge of history and culture to their audiences. With the evolving demands of society, heritage institutions are always pressured to create, host and circulate more relevant and diverse exhibitions every year. The latest survey data indicates institutions are doing just that. For example, overall, permanent exhibitions in 2015 totalled 15,046, a decline of 4% since 2011, yet over the same time period, newly created exhibitions increased by approximately 16% to reach 8,645 in 2015, signifying a higher turn-over in exhibitions year over year. The circulation of exhibitions has also been on the rise, with data indicating a substantial increase of 51% since 2011, reaching 3,610 in 2015.

The majority of permanent exhibitions are held in museums (79%), historic sites (9%) and art galleries (6%). The institutions creating the majority of new exhibitions every year are museums (49%), art galleries (34%) and archives (8%). Museums also circulate more exhibitions than any other institution type (44%) followed by art galleries (30%), zoos and botanical gardens (13%).

Online exhibitions offer easy access to audiences all over the world. They are not limited by distance, time and space the way physical exhibitions are. Instead of being open to the public at certain times of the day, they are available around the clock, and delivered directly to homes and classrooms via the Internet. The number of exhibitions hosted online by heritage institutions in Canada reached more than 3,550 in 2015, a considerable increase over 2011 (up 62%). Archives provided the largest percentage of online exhibitions (41%), followed by museums (40%) and art galleries (14%). Archives have undertaken major efforts to ensure that more of their exhibitions are accessible online, and their digital operations helped increase their online exhibitions by 108% over the last 5 years.

Research requests

Heritage institutions are considered to be a trusted source of history and heritage information. These institutions provide a wealth of data, allowing academics, researchers and the general public to discover stories not readily available elsewhere. Research requests overall have increased by approximately 77% over the last 5 years, reaching over 1.1 million annually. Archives receive the bulk of those requests (72%), followed by museums (16%) and art galleries (9%). Archives also experienced the largest growth in research requests of all heritage institution types, increasing by over 103% since 2011.

Heritage buildings and capital infrastructure

Heritage institutions are constantly having to renovate and upgrade their facilities. Whether it be "bricks and mortar" or curatorial and storage spaces, institutions have a responsibility to ensure their facilities are equipped to properly care for the valuable collections and capital assets they hold which, in many cases, includes the buildings themselves. When this year's survey asked what the overall physical condition of buildings and capital infrastructure was, nearly 38% of all institutions responded that conditions are less than adequate, (approximately 31% of those say their facilities are fair but require attention, nearly 6% say their facilities are poor and are approaching the end of service life, and 1% have very poor facilities that are unfit for sustained service). Of the remaining 62% of institutions, 33% say that their facilities are good or adequate, nearly 22% say their facilities are very good and fit for the future, and approximately 7% of respondents were either not sure, or indicated that the question did not apply.

When breaking the data down by province/territory, 56%, 44% and 42% of all institutions in the territories, Manitoba and British Columbia, respectively, have buildings and other capital infrastructure that are less than adequate. The Atlantic provinces, on the other hand, show that the majority of their institutions are either good, or very good and fit for the future (71% in Prince Edward Island, 69% in Newfoundland and Labrador, and 63% in New Brunswick).

This year's survey also asked whether institutions were planning to undertake any infrastructure upgrades in the next 3 years. Overall, approximately 72% of heritage institutions indicated they were planning on undertaking some sort of infrastructure project. Of those, approximately 20% of institutions stated that they were constructing a new facility or expanding their existing one, approximately 43% are planning to improve their current facility (i.e. improve visitor flow, accessibility, storage, curatorial spaces, etc.), over 34% are planning improvements to their facility's physical plant (i.e. HVAC, lighting, etc.), and approximately 48% plan to make improvements to visitor experience (i.e. displays, exhibits). The remaining 28% of institutions in the sector indicated that they are not planning to undertake any infrastructure upgrades (approximately 15%), or did not know/did not apply (14%).

Artefacts and records

Slight revisions were applied to the 2013 data on artefacts and records (originally captured in the 2015 survey), and have been updated and included in this report to reflect a more accurate snapshot of the cultural material held in heritage institutions across the country.

The latest revised data for artefacts and records shows that heritage institutions have a combined total of over 7.7 million linear meters of textual records. Archives house the bulk of these records (approximately 72%), followed by museums (27%).

There are over 113 million items of graphic material (i.e. photographs, drawings, cartographic maps, architectural and technical drawings etc.) held in heritage institutions all over Canada. Archives house the majority (69%) followed by museums (29%).

Canada's heritage institutions preserve and protect over 1.9 million hours of film, video and sound recordings. Archives and museums hold most of these collections at 70% and 26% respectively.

Heritage institutions house over 70 million artefacts and objects, including archeological artefacts, fine art, military objects, scientific or technical objects etc. Museums are responsible for protecting over 81% of these treasures, followed by historic sites at 17%.

There are nearly 41 million natural history and scientific specimens (i.e. plant, animal, paleontological and geological specimens) conserved across the country, allowing scientists, researchers and enthusiasts to study the natural history and phenomenon of our world.

Digitization of artefacts and records

Slight revisions were also applied to the 2013 data on digitization of artefacts and records, (originally captured in the 2015 survey). The updated data are included in this report.

Digitization of artefacts and collections is a form of preservation; it also helps to meet the demand for digital access to artefacts. The survey results show that heritage institutions have amassed over 5.6 million gigabytes of born digital records (records that originate in a digital form). They also have over 4.7 million gigabytes from the conversion of physical objects and records into a digital format. In both instances, archives hold most of those digital records, 77% and 94% respectively.

Overall, heritage institutions have converted over 16% of their physical artefacts and records into digital format. Of that, about 10% is available online to the public.

Data sources, methods and definitions

Reference period

The 2015 calendar year or in some cases the corresponding 12 month fiscal period for 2015-16, depending on the method of operation by the institution surveyed.

Collection period

February 2017 through to May 2017.

Description

The survey collects financial and operating data required to gain a better understanding of not-for-profit heritage institutions in Canada and to help develop national and regional policies and programs.

This data is aggregated to produce official estimates of the national and provincial economic production along with the cultural civic role of all heritage institutions in Canada. Data from the Government of Canada Survey of Heritage Institutions, together with revenue and expenditure data from the Canada Revenue Agency, contributes to the accurate measurement of national and provincial economic and social activities.

Target population

The target population consists of not-for-profit establishments classified as heritage institutions in accordance to the definition of North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). Institutions surveyed include archives (519122), non-commercial art museums and galleries, (712111), history and science museums (712115), other museums (712119), historic and heritage sites (712120), as well as zoos and botanical gardens (712130).

The survey captures publically and privately owned heritage institutions whose purpose is to preserve, interpret and provide public access to its artefacts, documents, specimens, buildings and sites of cultural and educational value. These can include historical, artistic, scientific, technological, as well as objects of natural history.

Data sources

The Government of Canada Survey of Heritage Institutions data comes primarily from two sources.

  1. Revenues, expenditures and heritage sector characteristics data (i.e. visits, employment numbers, research requests, etc.) from an online survey administered by the Department of Canadian Heritage;
  1. Revenues and expenditures data from the Canada Revenue Agency's Registered Charity Information Return (T3010 information return).

Sampling

This is a sample survey with a cross sectional design. A cross sectional design is aimed at determining certain attributes at a particular point in time. In this case it is for heritage institutions in 2015 (Note: Statistics on buildings and capital infrastructure is for the 2017 data year).

The sampling frame consists of a list of not-for-profit institutions eligible for surveying. All institutions from the sampling frame are confirmed to be eligible for surveying. The frame offers information about each institution including address, industry classification and information from administrative data sources.

The surveys main objective is to produce estimates for the entire sector, which includes incorporated and unincorporated institutions. These include revenue and expenditure estimates as well as sector characteristic estimates.

The sample size for all institutions for reference year 2015 was 2,240 institutions.

The overall response rate from the emailed survey questionnaire was 44% (981 institutions).

Data captured through the Canadian Revenue Agency provided statistics on 1,392 institutions.

By merging the corresponding two sources, the Department of Canadian Heritage captured data on 1,820 institutions or 68% of the entire heritage sector (the entire heritage sector is comprised of approximately 2700 institutions).

Revision of preliminary data

The data provided in this report is considered preliminary and could be subject to future adjustment. The 2013 preliminary data and the 2011 preliminary data, has been revised and is also included in this report, allowing for accurate comparison of each data year. Only the revised data available in this report should be used for year over year comparisons.

Error detection

Non sample errors such as duplication, response inaccuracy caused by human error, reporting or coding of data to which a specific statistical analysis is exposed, is verified several times to ensure that systematic and random non sample errors are minimized. Data is checked and analysed for errors and irregularity. These checks look for reporting consistency such as section totals being equal to the components, identification of excessive or incorrect values, etc.

Quality evaluation

Prior to dissemination, combined survey results are analyzed for comparability. In general, this includes a detailed analysis of individual responses for each institution, historic trends and comparison with other data sources.

Imputation

Imputation can be used for any missing, invalid or inconsistent responses. Methods include:

  • Data submitted by a respondent (with or without adjustments) for a previous period are used to impute data for the current period.
  • Imputation for partial or total non-response by a respondent are made on the basis of a full response by a respondent with similar characteristics.
  • Total industry or sub-industry weights or averages are used to impute missing variables

Estimation and weighting

The survey data is weighted by institution type, geographical location and revenue bracket, and is combined with administrative data to produce final sector estimates.

Data accuracy

All efforts are made to ensure that all stages of collection and dissemination are done accurately. However, the final estimates are unavoidably subject to a certain degree of error. Data can be affected by two types of error: sampling error and non-sampling error.

  • Non Sampling Error: Includes coverage errors, such as when an institution in the sample is incorrectly excluded or included, or is duplicated in the sample. It also includes non-response error, such as the failure to obtain a response from some institutions because of absence, refusal, or some other reason, such as error caused by respondents intentionally or accidentally providing inaccurate responses, and processing error, such as errors that occur in the process of data collection, data entry, coding, editing and output.
  • Sampling Error: Arises as a result of taking a sample from a population rather than using the whole population. It refers to the difference between the estimate derived from a sample survey and the 'true' value that would result if a census of the whole population were taken under the same conditions. As a general rule, the more people being surveyed (sample size), the smaller the sampling error will be.

Privacy

Canadian Heritage is prohibited by law from releasing any information it collects which could identify any person, business, or organization, unless consent has been given by the respondent. Information from this survey will be used for statistical purposes only and will be published only in aggregate form.
