abstract

The e ect of immigration as a determinant of the import of cultural goods to Canada is analysed. The period studied covers a time span of 15 years from 1996 to 2010 while utilising data from 15 of Canada’s top trading partners for cultural goods. Empirical results suggest that there are various significant determinants of cultural trade such as economic mass of the exporting country, geographic distance and shared o icial common language. Furthermore, results suggest that the stock of immigrants has a positive e ect on imports of cultural goods to Canada. Empiri- cal results are based on an augmented gravity model while using ordinary least squares method.
