Low Dollar Bodes Well for B.C.’s Film, Television Industry

Jan 22, 2015 | News, Uncategorized

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.”
