Canadians and the Arts
In general, Canadians believe all of these factors contribute in some way to the quality of life their communities, although once again this is most likely to be the case with respect to public green spaces (64% say this makes a significant contribution). Half of Canadians think that good relations between different groups (52%), local services (50%) and active citizen engagement (49%) play a significant role in the quality of life in their communities, while four in ten (42%) think the availability of employment opportunities contributes significantly to the quality of life in their communities. Fewer Canadians identify the availability of arts and culture as a contributing factor to the quality of life in their communities, although one third (33%) nevertheless believe it makes a big contribution.•
Opinions on the contribution of these aspects differ significantly between Canadians who live in larger cities and those who live in smaller communities, most notably when it comes to the availability of arts and culture, and the presence of public green spaces.

Statement of Intent
I make every effort to credit the sources of information used in this blog and to obtain the permission and cooperation of all the works presented by living artists. I try, as much as possible to use works from public sources eg. national and provincial collections, of deceased artists. If for any reason, any artist disapproves of anything written about them or their work the artist is encouraged to request withdrawal of the content.
