Abstract Summary: The purpose of this research is to explore the scope and limits of conceptual frameworks for quantitative measurement of the cultural and creative economy applied to small language groups. The conceptual frameworks considered in the study include ones by: 1) Statistics Canada (Waltman Daschko, 2011), 2) the Quebec Observatory of culture and communications (2007) and 3) UNESCO (Cliche, 2014). Comparing these different conceptual frameworks involves looking critically at the theories and methods that lead to the production of data on culture in a context of competition or coexistence of languages. To examine the scope and limits of these frameworks, we will use data on Quebec’s English-speaking artists and arts and culture professionals.

This research will enable the development of a more relevant conceptual model for cultural statistics concerning linguistic minorities by examining the scope and limits of current models or the adaptation of one of the models to the reality of linguistic minorities. A case study will be conducted on Quebec’s English-speaking artists and arts and culture professionals and will report on their situation in this "new cultural and creative economy”. It will look at the theoretical foundations of the cultural and creative economy in the light of the most recent works in different disciplines (sociology, communication, geography, economy).

Language issues are part of the cultural and political life of Quebec, where artistic expressions have long been a vector of its collective identity marked by the affirmation of the French fact. Moreover, these issues are shared by francophones outside Quebec and a host of other linguistic minority communities. Thus, the importance of this research goes beyond the case studied in this project. The results can be used to study cases of other linguistic minorities within Canada and beyond. In addition, integrating the linguistic dimension into national conceptual tools for cultural data classification has the potential to generate better public strategies for promoting and protecting linguistic diversity.
