Video Games Jobs Canada

Indeed, the main “power center” for Canada’s video game enterprises are Vancouver and Montreal, where handsome tax breaks resulted in major firms and thousands of video game employment positions. Ontario is actually not far behind; its provincial budget raised the tax credit for the digital media entities. This move permitted firms in Ontario to write off approximately 30% of staffing expenditures.

However, when the work is done, there would be little for artists to accomplish, until the next project arrives.
