Arts and Handicrafts Guide

Arts, crafts, and handcrafts retailers are individual artisans and establishments that sell unique artistic creations. These sellers often specialize in a particular medium, such as glass, wood, or stone. They may also make art that stems from their traditions and their local context, as First Nations, Aboriginal, Inuit, and Metis artisans and craftspeople do. The arts and handicrafts industry is a significant part of the Canadian culture sector, accounting for over $2.2 billion in GDP in 2016. It’s also a direct industry, without many middlemen: 85% of the money made through craft sales goes directly to the artisan or craftsperson. Retailers often buy products directly from local artists, or create their own products.
