ob growth in the culture sector outpaced the overall labour market from 1991 to 2002, according to a new report from Statistics Canada, but the boom may have ended.

The 1980s saw a rapid expansion of the culture workforce, which includes things like creative and artistic production and heritage collection and preservation, to meet increased demand for culture goods and services.
