Toronto’s film and television industry is established by top unions such as IATSE and Nabet, as well as guilds and associations like the Director’s Guild of Canada and ACTRA.
A province stacked with VFX and post production facilities, we are well rounded to provide the support needed to production teams when you require highly skilled crew and talent. Similarly, the DGC database keeps producers informed with crew availability across the province. Ontario Creates acts as the go-to government agency advocating on behalf of the industry and is constantly making improvements to ensure there is an understanding of what producers need.

Toronto’s mayor insists on being only a phone call away if ever issues arise, guaranteed to help problem solve and support the industry. Working in collaboration, the Toronto Film Office, FilmOntario and Ontario Creates are devoted to fighting for productions to ensure the best level of customer service is being met.
