FAME’S ECONOMIC IMPACT STUDY   /   2009
“THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF CANADA’S LARGEST FESTIVALS AND EVENTS”

• Commissioned by the Canadian Festivals Coalition (now FAME)
• Complied by Enigma Research Corporation

Our groundbreaking study measured the impact of 15 Marquee Tourism Event Program (MTEP) stimulus fund recipients. Key findings revealed that the substantial economic impact derived from both operational and tourism spending is estimated at $1.1 billion per year, and spending related to these events generates approximately $283 million in tax revenue for all three levels of government.
