One of Ontario’s great advantages is our strength across so many different sectors – and the collaboration that takes place between the sectors to exploit those strengths to even greater advantage.  Ontario Creates is committed to sustaining the commercial and market success of Ontario’s creative companies as they develop, produce and roll out their products onto digital platforms. As delivery platforms continue to rapidly change and evolve, cross- sector partnerships are more vital than ever to our cultural industries.
