The City of Toronto is the centre of Ontario’s Film and Television Industry. In 2022, the industry generated over $3 billion in spending across the province, with the bulk of that ($2.5 billion) taking place in the City of Toronto. This translates into 45,000 direct and indirect FTEs.

When a mayoral candidate knocks on your door, ask them how they will support the industry!
  • 1

    Will they support the activities of the Toronto Film Office?

  • 2

    Will they be a champion for the industry by:

    – advocating on behalf of the sector to other levels of government on issues such as tax credits; and

    – promoting the City as a world-class filming jurisdiction to domestic and inernational partners?

  • 3

    Will they continue to work with community and industry partners on training opportunities for film and television production, with a focus on continuing to diversify the industry in front of and behind the camera?

  • 4

    Will they support the industry in its efforts to become more sustainable?

  • 5

    Will they ensure that the City continues to be a great place to invest in studio infrastructure by building on existing opportunities for studio development and making sure that projects across the City that have already been announced get built?

  • 6

    Will they continue the Film, Television and Digital Media Board as a Council Advisory Board?
