Creative BC brings a strategic and integrated approach to the growth and development of British Columbia’s creative sector. The organization is an independent society created and supported by the provincial government to sustain and help grow British Columbia’s creative industries, which are defined as those generating original storytelling content for mass production, global distribution and consumption: motion picture, interactive and digital media, music and sound recording, and magazine and book publishing.
The society delivers a wide range of programs and services with a mandate to expand B.C.’s creative economy. These activities include administration of the provincial government’s motion picture tax credit programs, delivery of program funding and export marketing support for the sector, and provincial film commission services. Combined, these activities serve to attract inward investment and market B.C. as a partner and destination of choice for domestic and international content creation.
Creative BC acts as an industry catalyst and ambassador to help B.C.’s creative sector reach its economic, social, environmental, and creative potential both at home and globally. Accountability for change is a foundational principle in all spheres of our activity and influence.
We gratefully acknowledge the unceded ancestral territories of the 34 First Nations language and cultural groups upon whose homelands the province’s creative industries work and live. Creative BC and the sector we support have a crucial role to play in uplifting Indigenous people and specifically, Indigenous voices, creators, companies, and creative content. We prioritize actions that foster relationships and lasting partnerships, contribute to long-term value, ensure greater access, and deepen cultural understanding. Creative BC embeds accountability for change as a foundational principle in all spheres of our activity and influence.
British Columbia’s creators, companies, and stories are sought out and celebrated—at home and around the world.
Creative BC elevates a diverse and dynamic creative sector through leadership, collaboration, and investment.
Integrity: We commit, uphold, and deliver.
