• Digital Media Tax Credits

Incentives to grow the Canadian media industry

Canada’s federal and provincial governments offer some of the most generous incentives in the world, including for the creation of digital media products. These incentives may apply to current or prior product development initiatives and are complementary to tax credits such as Canada’s Scientific Research & Experimental Development program.

There are over 450 different incentives available in Canada with many of these directed toward the media sector.
