Media and production tax credits

Helping you maximize government and private tax credit and incentive program opportunities.

When it comes to film or television productions, animation or digital media projects, our extensive industry knowledge means you don’t have to wade through the complex rules and guidelines to secure the tax incentives you want. With over 30 different media and production related tax credits available in Canada, we can help you understand Canada’s tax incentive landscape, and access the appropriate federal, provincial and territorial programs to offset production and project costs and save you money. 


Canada’s media and production tax credits and incentives include:

  • film and video production tax credits and incentives based on eligible labour and production expenditures
  • animation, visual effects and post-production tax credits based on eligible labour expenditures
  • refundable interactive digital media tax credits offered by several provinces, based on eligible labour expenditures and eligible marketing and distribution expenses
  • generous tax incentives provided by Canada’s scientific research and experimental development (SR&ED) program, to reward companies advancing science or technology in the gaming industry.
