PwC is nice enough to provide us with a list of all digital media and animation incentive programs in Canada. BC, Manitoba, PEI, Nova Scotia, Quebec and Ontario all have lucrative incentive programs to promote this industry in their jursidiction (check it out some can be very lucrative).
New Brunswick has no programs according to PwC.
I think this is a bit of a shame. New Brunswickers are a creative bunch (IMO) and this type of work can be done anywhere (think FatKat). The wages are higher as well and most people find the work engaging (based on what I read on this).
I am not saying that incentive programs are the only thing that matters but if Ontario is dangling millions or PEI or Nova Scotia in front of companies, it’s hard to be competitive.
