Nova Scotia Film Tax Credit
Info Pages


In its April 2015 budget, the Nova Scotia government effectively gutted its Film Tax Credit. As of April 23, it appears they have regained some sanity and will be moving to a 25-30% "total spend" grant model similar to Alberta. There's many other places where you can find out more about this colossal government blunder; but here's some resources to help try make sense of the situation. I'm continually adding things as I get time.
