Supporting Film Production in Sudbury

Ontario Government Strengthening Northern Economy

Ministry of Northern Development and Mines

The Ontario government's support for a film shoot in Sudbury is boosting the local economy and creating jobs in the film industry.

With support from the province's Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC), the motion picture The Intruders is being filmed in the Greater Sudbury area. The production is creating jobs for local residents, who are working as extras, crew members and production staff.

Investing in Northern Ontario's film industry helps deliver on the Growth Plan for Northern Ontario, and is part of the government's economic plan to invest in people, build modern infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.
