Getting ready to start filming in the Greater Sudbury area? Take advantage of the regional, provincial and federal film and video tax credits that are available.
Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation
The Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC) can support your film or television production in Greater Sudbury with their funding programs. Funding is available based on your project’s spending in Northern Ontario and its opportunities for employment for residents in our community.
Ontario Production Services Tax Credit
If your film or television production qualifies, the Ontario Production Services Tax Credit (OPSTC) is a refundable tax credit to help with Ontario labour and other production expenditures.
Ontario Computer Animation and Special Effects Tax Credit
The Ontario Computer Animation and Special Effects (OCASE) Tax Credit is a refundable tax credit that helps you offset the cost of computer animation and special effects. You can claim the OCASE Tax Credit on eligible costs in addition to the OFTTC or OPSTC.
Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit
The Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit (CPTC) provides eligible productions with a fully refundable tax credit, available at a rate of 25 per cent of the qualified labour expenditure.
Jointly administered by the Canadian Audio-Visual Certification Office (CAVCO) and the Canada Revenue Agency, the CPTC encourages the creation of Canadian film and television programming and the development of an active domestic independent production sector.
CION’s Media Arts Production: Practiced, Employed, Developed (MAPPED) program is a production assistance fund, designed to help film and television producers provide on the job training to Northern Ontario residents looking to work in the industry. MAPPED seeks to supplement existing funding sources in order to hire and train emerging film and television workers by providing partial funding for Northern Ontario crew trainees to a maximum of $10,000 per production.
