The Ottawa Film Office’s main mandate is to attract film and television productions to Ottawa to significantly increase the industry’s economic impact in the region. To that end, we meet with local and foreign producers, here and at key markets around the world, to assess their needs and determine how they can benefit from the resources, locations, and tax incentives offered by producing in the National Capital Region.


We liaise with producers, distributors and industry executives across Canada and around the world to aid the local production community achieve its goals and grow this important cultural sector. From connecting producers to distributors, to advising on funding and tax incentives and advocating to all levels of government, the Ottawa Film Office can help your screen-based business prosper.
