Annual business volume for foreign productions
The QFTC brings together its members specialized in production services within a committee dedicated to the sector, in order to work together to identify priority issues and develop concrete projects to address them. If you are interested in participating in this committee, contact us to find out more.
Each year, the QFTC organizes familiarization tours for producers and decision-makers from foreign production companies in order to introduce them to all the services and advantages that Quebec offers as a world-class audiovisual production center. It also organizes scouting with producers interested in Quebec for a specific project.
The QFTC also organizes thematic international trade missions on a regular basis in order to meet with major production companies and decision-makers in the sector to promote Quebec’s production services. These missions are an opportunity to demonstrate Quebec’s unique expertise and to create business opportunities with economic spin-offs for the entire province.

The office regularly publishes statistics and studies in order to inform its members of current trends and innovations. It conducts a strategic national and international watch to seize business opportunities. It also offers its members networking opportunities through various activities throughout the year: committees and meetings, conferences and activities, professional events, etc. Finally, the office promotes collaboration among its members by identifying opportunities and facilitating the creation of business links.
In collaboration with its members, the QFTC develops various initiatives to foster innovation, support growth and ensure the representation of its members to the various levels of government.
In collaboration with the independent firm RCGT, the Ministère de l’Économie and several major industry players, the office conducted a study to examine in detail the factors and conditions needed to build new studio infrastructures in order to increase – or even double – our business capacity.
This study underscores the QFTC’s desire to ensure that infrastructures are developed in Quebec to meet the growth in filming.
To ensure industry collaboration, the QFTC has created a virtual production subcommittee. This action aims to bring VFX professionals and set technicians closer together to encourage cooperation between these two sectors in implementing this new technology that is virtual production.
The office is also currently providing real-time production training in collaboration with the NAD-UQAC school for VFX and animation studio artists.
The QFTC acts as a representative of the production services industry to government authorities in order to share their needs and issues. It conducts studies and compiles statistical data to inform the industry and public institutions of current trends. It also makes sure to identify promising opportunities for the sector’s growth and works with institutions and companies to implement them.
Each year, the QFTC along with its members participate in events to promote the careers and trades in the audiovisual sector. It also develops initiatives to promote the industry directly to youth to foster the next generation of passionate and qualified talent.
At the request of the Live-Action and VFX & Animation committees, a consultation table was created, bringing together all the key players in the industry to identify the needs, issues and priority avenues for workforce growth. No less than 5 axes have been established for this project, including: a diagnosis of labour needs, the training-employment balance, promotion and outreach of careers and trades, attraction and retention of workforce and finally immigration.
