Hamilton offers all the key ingredients to become the next creative industrial hotbed in Canada. An excellent quality of life, affordable living options, easy access to major markets within a 100 km radius including Toronto and the northern U.S.A., and most importantly, a well-developed and growing local scene. For over 100 years Hamilton has had a vibrant and dynamic creative industries cluster that is in the beginning stages of yet another boom period. From our foundations as Canada’s industrial heartland, Hamilton as a “city of artists” in many fields has driven local prosperity. Artists and creative businesses in most every discipline have thrived in our community as there is growing internal and external markets for local creativity, strong opportunities for presentation, excellent networks that are easy to access, and a growing population who engage in their local cultural community.
In 2012 and 2013, Site Selection Magazine out of Atlanta, GA named Hamilton the top investment city in Canada, and the Calgary-based Real Estate Investment Network ranked Hamilton the top location across the province of Ontario for investment in 2012 and 2013l. Hamilton has also been ranked in the top cities in North America by FDI Magazine (a publication of the world-famous Financial Times) for quality of life.
Hamilton also offers the Ontario Film and Television Tax Credit (OFTTC) - a refundable tax credit (http://www.fin.gov.on.ca/en/credit/ofttc/). It is available to corporations for eligible Ontario labour expenses on Ontario film and television productions. A further credit of 10% of Ontario labour expenses is available for filming outside the Greater Toronto Area here in Hamilton!
With a talented and educated workforce, tax credit advantages, stunning natural amenities and a diverse, resilient economy, it’s all happening here in Hamilton.
