Who We Are

The Film Office focuses on the continued development, retention, competitiveness, and enhancement of the city’s film and television industry. It also promotes the region as a preferred industry destination and supports the development and growth of the local industry.

Location Support

Don't know where to start? We help foreign (and local) producers find the locations, crew, and services they need to make their production a success.


Whether you’re looking for local crew, equipment, hotels or other resources, Ottawa has everything you need to make your project come in on time and on budget.

Business Development

We work with local producers and screen-based companies to help them expand and attract new projects to the National Capital Region.

Industry Promotion

We're working towards making sure that Ottawa's screen-based media industry is no longer one of the city's best kept secrets.
