Each year, Orchestras Canada collects and collates financial information and audience numbers from member orchestras and produces a detailed Comparative Report which is then shared among all the participating orchestras. The 2015/16 Comparative Report contains information from 68 orchestras, including all member orchestras with budgets over $1.5 million, and a very significant majority of orchestras with budgets over $50,000.
The Summaries, calculated from the information in the Comparative Report, provide a snapshot of the Canadian orchestra industry as a whole for the 2015-16 season. The information has been consolidated in two ways: by budget size and by regions.
