B.C. surpasses Ontario as top Canadian production locale for films, TV: report
British Columbia, the home of blockbuster movie shoots such as "Deadpool 2" and "Star Trek Beyond,"
has surpassed Ontario as Canada's top locale for film and television
production for the first time.
A new report by the Canadian Media Producers Association says the
2016-2017 fiscal year was strong for Canada overall, with production
volume in the country reaching an all-time high of $8.38 billion.
B.C. has always been in the top three provinces for film and TV shoots,
but the report says last year its production volume hit $2.991 billion,
just ahead of Ontario with $2.977 billion. Quebec, with its thriving
French-language industry, placed third with $1.754 billion. https://infotel.ca/newsitem/bc-surp...-report/it49939
