Provincial Budget Update

As you know, the Provincial Budget was announced today. I attended both the Budget lock-up and Minister Sousa’s speech in the Legislature, and I am pleased to report that there are no changes to the screen-based Tax Credits in this year’s Budget. As we have all been working very hard to deliver the message to government that stable Tax Credits are key to supporting our industry, this is very good news.

Thank you to all the FilmOntario Board Members and members who have visited politicians, hosted them on your sets, and promoted the economic benefits of the screen-based industries in Ontario. The message has definitely been heard at Queen’s Park.

We will continue our work with the Minister’s Advisory Panel on Film and Television to find ways to streamline and modernize the Tax Credits. Our goal is to ensure that the Credits remain the best possible tool to support the industry, and that Ontario is one of the best places in the world to make films and television shows. We couldn’t accomplish any of this work without our members, so I would like to thank you all for continued support of FilmOntario. I am looking forward to continuing our work together on behalf of our industry.
