Communities Receive Cash from Film Industry

by Aaron Krach

Anyone who has ever experienced a film crew setting up shop in your front yard
understands the havoc it can cause. In Canada, the companies are now trying to
give something back to the communities. Six Ontario communities received a $5000
donation from the province’s film, television and commercial production industry.
The financial rewards are “thank you gifts” to communities that have been
featured in films, television and commercial productions in the past year. Since
1991, Ontario has donated funds to the Thank You Toronto/Ontario campaign. Final
decisions on who received the funds was decided by the Ontario Film Development
and the Toronto Film & Television Office.

The recipients included; Durham Region(Whitby, Oshawa); Nobel (Parry Sound); King
Township; Ward 10, Toronto; Ward 13, Toronto and Ward 14, Toronto.
