Our Mission

To attract film and television production and co-production to the National Capital Region, to foster the growth and development of the local industry, and to act as the lead voice for the region within the screen-based sector.

Our Vision

To increase the prominence of Ottawa and the National Capital Region as a full-service production destination and to reflect the work of our film, television, and animation creators on screens around the world.

Services

The Ottawa Film Office focuses on the continued development, retention, competitiveness, and enhancement of the city’s film and television industry. In addition, it coordinates various permits, promotes the region as a preferred industry destination, and supports the development and growth of the local industry.
