Hill Strategies Research has just released the latest in its invaluable series of reports, largely drawn from Statistics Canada research, and this one – devoted to cultural participation by Canadians in 2010 – advises that Canadians’ participation in arts, culture and heritage activities reached record levels in 2010.

Among the highlights:

• All Canadians participated in an arts, culture or heritage activity in 2010

• 97.5% read a newspaper, magazine or book in 2010.
