The ministry of tourism, culture and sport says the industry poured $1.5 billion into the province’s economy and supported almost 32,500 direct and associated jobs last year.
Domestic productions accounted for half of the total spending, although foreign spending rose 52 per cent from the previous year to $763 million.
Some of the productions that included work done in Ontario are the Oscar-winning films “Room” and “Spotlight.”
