> Introduction

The Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) ( is a national not-for-profit organization dedicated to strengthening Canada 's cultural workforce and improving the HR environment within the cultural sector. One of the areas where CHRC is devoting a lot of time and energy is in the Live Performing Arts.

For example, professional technical workers in the Live Performing Arts from around the country with a wealth of experience and knowledge have developed several competency charts and profiles for occupations in their business; to assist their colleagues in identifying their skills and training needs. A similar exercise was carried out for Presenters.

The Cultural Human Resources Council strives to be at the centre of vision and forward thinking in the areas of cultural human resources development. We hope that these online resources will help you to achieve your professional goals, by providing a map of the skills and training you need to find success in your chosen field.

These tools can be used to:

  • address gaps in formal education and training that exist in the given occupations
  • increase understanding of the broad roles that the cultural workers in the occupations play within cultural, educational and economic sectors
  • provide a reliable self-assessment tool for cultural workers, educators, artists, organizations and government to use for their own specific needs

This online resource is designed to help you achieve your professional goal, by providing a map of the training needed to find success in your chosen field.
