Did you know that film and television production work is worth $1 billion dollars a year to Toronto?  Canada Film Capital and EP Canada were proud to act as sponsors to Toronto Mayor John Tory’s trip to Los Angeles in support of the industry.  While in LA, the Mayor attended “an Evening with Canada’s Stars” at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills where Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara received the Academy’s Legacy Award. Mr. Tory was in Los Angeles to show Toronto’s support for the film and TV production industry. He connected with many of the major US studios and many of the independents. It was an excellent opportunity to hear feedback from producers and to express appreciation for the investments which have been made in Toronto’s economy.

In December 2015, both Entertainment Partners and Canada Film Capital made a financial contribution to help support the Directors Guild of Canada’s efforts to welcome a Syrian refugee family to Canada. 

The Directors Guild led group has submitted their application and are currently waiting to be matched with a family.  Of the 17 sponsorship groups in the program, 3 have welcomed their families and 7 more are matched and will be welcoming their families over the next month or two.  The Directors Guild led group is expecting to be matched very soon as well and are also involved in efforts to get the government to shift more cases to private sponsorships to speed up the process.

Keeping checking the blog for updates, which we will post as soon as we get an update.
