Low Dollar Bodes Well for B.C.’s Film, Television Industry
January 22, 2015
Peter Leitch, chairman of Motion Picture Production Industry Association of B.C., says the low Canadian dollar is good news to the local film industry.

Canada’s low dollar vis-à-vis the U.S. greenback should give B.C.’s film and television industry a boost, says Peter Leitch, chairman of the Motion Picture Production Industry Association of B.C.

“It’s obviously good news for us because the bulk of the work we do comes from Los Angeles,” said Leitch.

“Certainly, compared to a couple of years ago when we were at par (with the U.S. dollar), it’s making a big difference. It remains a competitive business, but the dollar is a big factor in attracting business from L.A.”
