CHRC is now receiving applications for BCH internships for 2019-2020 from employers in not-for-profit arts and culture organizations.
The application deadline is February 1st, 2019.
Building Careers in Heritage is a first-work experience in arts practice, cultural management or arts administration for young college and university graduates who want to pursue a career in the cultural sector. It is a paid internship program administered by CHRC and funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage as part of Canada’s Youth Employment Strategy
YOUNG CANADA WORKS aims to promote skills development, knowledge of Canadian achievements in the cultural sector and cultural heritage, and to enhance the employability of internship participants. The duration of the internship is from 16 to 52 weeks.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, Lucie D’Aoust, CHRC Youth Internship Program Coordinator.
It’s been one year since the Live Performing Arts rallied their forces to address harassment in their midst, at a Roundtable in Toronto in January 2018.
Under the banner “RESPECT you’ve got our word” (respectfulartsworkplaces.ca), and with CHRC’s leadership and the guidance of a Coordinating Committee (CC) of leaders in theatre, dance and music, the literary arts and the visual arts (including from Indigenous, culturally diverse and official language minority communities), messaging and practical tools are being created to help arts organizations and artists to recognize, and prevent harassment in arts workplaces.
Train-the-trainer workshops will be held to train representatives from the performing, literary and visual arts to develop and deliver workshops on harassment for their own colleagues and communities. More on these in the coming weeks.
Talent to Lead Year 3 has officially begun with the all-important mentorship matches and the learning webinars. We are delighted that this third cohort of future leaders includes participants from Indigenous, culturally diverse and official language minority communities from coast to coast to coast. CHRC is pleased to once again be working with Mentorat cultural and HEC in Montréal, and with Williams HR Consulting in Toronto and with a strong and experienced Steering Committee and Advisory Committee in Montreal. Funding for T2L is generously provided by the Department of Canadian Heritage and the Metcalf Foundation.
The Labour Market Study of the Cultural Labour Force is well underway, with generous funding from Employment and Social Development Canada.
All cultural sector employers and individuals are invited

Measuring the social and economic impact of the arts
The following 2 items are from Nicole Frenette, Director, Policy Research Group at the Department of Canadian Heritage
Arts + Social Impact Explorer
“We know that many of you are interested in economic impacts of arts and culture. The Americans for the Arts nonprofit organization recently launched the Arts + Social Impact Explorer. This new tool is aimed at better understanding the arts’ long-term social impacts by bringing together research and case study examples (mainly from the United States).
The tool, which is available only in English, can be consulted by clicking this link”
Measuring economic impact of the arts – a new Stats Canada economic impact model
‘Have you been asked to measure the economic impact of a particular project, initiative or program? Have you ever wanted to learn how to use economic impact models?
With funding from the Canadian Heritage’s Policy Research Group, Statistics Canada recently updated the Culture, Arts, Heritage and Sport Economic Impact Model (CAHSEIM). This model aims to measure the benefits, also known as economic impacts, of arts, culture, sport and heritage organizations, facilities and events. This new version uses coefficients and multipliers for the reference year 2014. The Policy Research Group developed a User Guide to give users a complete introduction to the CAHSEIM and instructions as to how to use it.
This tool is very easy to use for any individual and organization who wishes to evaluate the economic impact of museums, theatres, galleries, arenas and historic sites. It can also be used for arts, culture, sport and heritage related events such as performances, productions, presentations, and festivals.
CAHSEIM estimates impacts for the following economic statistics: labour income, gross domestic product (GDP), employment (total jobs and number of full-time equivalents) and tax revenues.
Please click here to get the new CAHSEIM in an easy to use Excel spreadsheet, and the user guide.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Policy Research Group should you have any questions or need help using CAHSEIM.
