Are productions that are only exhibited on online platforms eligible for the OPSTC?
Productions that are only exhibited online through a service which provides content to the end user for a purchase, license or subscription fee are eligible for the credit. Examples of such over-the-top streaming services are Netflix, Crave, Amazon Prime and Hulu.
In the 2022 Budget and the 2022 Economic Outlook and Fiscal Review (Fall Economic Statement) the Province proposed regulatory amendments for eligibility of online productions. These regulatory amendments are still pending.
