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 2016/17 Comparative Report contains information from 71 orchestras, including all member orchestras with budgets over $1.5 million, and almost all orchestras with budgets over $50,000.
The Summaries are created from the detailed information in the Comparative Report. They provide business snapshots of the Canadian orchestra industry in overview for the 2016-17 season. Detailed information from all orchestras has been consolidated in two ways: by budget size and by regions.
