Arts and culture play an impactful role in the education of young Canadians and can have lasting effects on their development. Many schools and educators organize Culture Days programming every year, so this research regarding arts, culture, and education is especially enlightening.

The top reason why Canadians think that arts and culture improves quality of life is that they help educate children, with 86% of the general population agreeing, while 99% of attendees agree.
