NAC attributes deficit to 'national activities'

Canada’s National Arts Center has reported an operating deficit of C$892,000 ($806,000) for the 2004-05 fiscal year, marking the first time in six years that the federal institution has had an operating loss.

NAC communications director Jayne Watson attributed the loss to “national activities,” including the orchestra’s educational tour to British Columbia. The previous year, the orchestra toured the U.S.

Ticket sales were also down at home for both theater and music performances.

National activities and education are part of the center’s mandate. Despite the subpar results, the NAC is projecting a small operating surplus for the current fiscal year.
