Cities of Northern Ontario

The six major production centres of the North each have distinct qualities. Discover our cities and the resources available in each one.

Northern Ontario is home to film studios, rental suppliers, hundreds of municipally-owned locations, and hundreds of crew members, all eager to provide services for your production.

While there are dozens of small towns throughout the North that make for excellent locations, most productions prefer to set up their base in one of our six major municipalities. All have a dedicated economic development office to ensure a smooth application process and offer support before, during and after production. Some cities focus on a specific look or season, while others are able to serve almost any production.
