Just as Northern Ontario was built on the rich bounty of its natural resources throughout the 20th century, the future sustainability of the region will be founded on how we apply new technologies in the 21st century. The Emerging Technology Program is designed to encourage both the private and public sectors to develop exciting and viable new technologies that will contribute to future northern prosperity.
The Since 2004, the NOHFC has provided $54.8 million to 80 film and television projects in Northern Ontario with a view to developing a sustainable industry.
As a normal course of business, we are currently conducting a review of the film and television component of our Emerging Technology Program to determine if it is reaching its objectives, which are as follows:
• Increase film and television industry jobs and investment in Northern Ontario;
• Increase the number of high quality, original film and television productions produced in Northern Ontario; and
• Support the establishment of an infrastructure to grow and support the film and television industry in Northern Ontario.
All previously made commitments will be honoured but new applications will not be accepted at this time. The review is expected to conclude in the fall of 2013 and an updated notice will be posted to this website when a decision has been made.
We’re proud of the significant investments we have made to support the growth of this industry in Northern Ontario. Our review will consider the best way we can focus our efforts to support the continued success of this sector.
