Is Canada Really Stealing Hollywood Productions?

A new study commissioned by the Canadian film industry disputes the idea that “runaway” movie shoots are hurting U.S. interests. “Despite claims of U.S. job losses, employment in the U.S. production industry has actually increased by 6.6 per cent since 1998.” The report also disputes the figures in an earlier study backed by American actors and producers, which claimed that Canada had caused $10.3 billion worth of economic loss to U.S. film interests.
