The Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) brings together cultural workers and employers to address training, career development and other human resource issues.


Current economic realities

CHRC is concerned with the direct impact of the COVID situation; we know that a large proportion of contracts and revenue streams have simply been cut off since social/physical distancing measures have been implemented. CHRC is working with sector partners to bring you resources to help as many as possible, as fast as possible.

Please consult our COVID-19 resources information page on our website:

To all Canadian cultural workers and artists

This is a time when we can do things differently and prove yet again that no matter what happens, artistic life will continue. While we may not be able to meet in person, we’ve seen the conversations come up on social media: this is the perfect time for people to pick up a book, paint, practice an instrument, etc. The current information age provides us with opportunities to continue interacting with students, deliver podcasts or live shows.
