Our industry is responsible for 32,489 full time equivalent jobs and contributes more than $1.5 billion to the Ontario economy. To increase production levels, create more jobs, and guarantee basic protections for artists, we need to be stay on the radar of Government decision makers.

We need politicians on our side to:

  • Promote our stories
  • Invest in Production
  • Create Jobs

We need to tell them our stories and help them to understand our incredible contribution to the economy and the stable, ongoing support our industry needs to continue to grow and produce work for all of us.
