Abstract

The Canada Council for the Arts is important because it gives funding to those institutions and establishments it deems integral to Canadian culture, this is based on Massey’s somewhat narrow definition of what Canadian culture is. This essay will explore how Massey’s definition of Canadian culture in The Royal Commission for the National Development in the Arts, Letters and Sciences has negatively impacted Canadian culture today by arguing that the highbrow themes present in the definition of Canadian Culture do not allow for mainstream culture to flourish.
