I posted a blog a few days ago about the animation/software industry and how NB is not competitive with its tax incentive regime. Quebec and BC have been the most aggressive in this area. The following chart is taken from a new report called Canada’s Entertainment Software Industry-The Opportunities and Challenges of a Growing Industry (March 25, 2009). Just by way of comparison, New Brunswick has about 2.3% of the national population and 0.1% of the entertainment software industry employment.
It’s really quite a shame given all the creativity in this province.
