Ontario's film and television industry contributed $1.28 billion to the provincial economy and 29,00 full-time jobs in 2012, the provincial Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport said. In a release Friday, the ministry said Ontario’s domestic film and television production accounted for 68 per cent, or $871.9 million, of the provincial industry’s 2012 total. Foreign productions, it said, represented $270.6 on the year, up 80 per cent from $150.2 million in 2011. In all, the ministry said economic activity in the province’s film and television industry has increased by 90 per cent since 2008. “The 2012 results prove that once again Ontario is the place to be for film and television production and reinforces a reputation that continues to grow,” Micahel Chan, the provincial Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport, said in the release.
