Interactive + Digital Media

  • British Columbia has the perfect ecosystem for a thriving digital media industry.   From its roots back in 1982 and the release of “Evolution” by Distinctive Software, BC’s interactive + digital media industry has grown to be a world-leading development hub made up of global media companies and hundreds of smaller studios.  BC's advantages include outstanding research and educational facilities, a strong base of artistic and technical talent and well established corporate and production infrastructure.

    Industry leader Electronic Arts has a long and established presence in Vancouver, spawning the creation of a significant number of smaller BC-owned companies working in the sector.

    BC's Interactive + Digital media sector is one of the most dynamic engines in the BC economy and is a key driver of skilled jobs that will define the future of the province.
