A new partnership has been announced between Canadore College and the Toronto Film School.

Described as both collaborative and mutually beneficial, the partnership between the two schools will “focus on developing a more robust local workforce through training, articulation agreements, and sharing learning opportunities.”

“We welcome the opportunity to collaborate in the north with Canadore College on education pathways to address the industry demand for a significant increase in trained, talented and available crew members in Northern Ontario,” said the incoming president of Toronto Film School Andrew Barnsley. “The time to plan for a post-pandemic recovery of the Northern Ontario film industry is now.”

Canadore President and CEO George Burton said he anticipates this new partnership with Toronto Film School will help continue the school’s proud history of producing graduates who are ‘job ready’ upon graduation.

“The College responds to the needs of industry in Northern Ontario and provides students who are ready, willing, and – most importantly – able to fill those gaps,” he said of Canadore, which offers a range of film industry-related programs, from Digital Cinematography and Acting for Stage and Screen, to Post-Production and Visual Effects.

“This memorandum of understanding with Toronto Film School carries on that tradition. It not only creates exciting educational opportunities for our Digital Cinematography students but helps Canadore to better meet the needs of this growing industry in the north.”

According to Cultural Industries Ontario North (CION) – a non-profit organization serving the needs of those working in the entertainment industry across the region – Northern Ontario has hosted more than 200 film and television productions since 2001.
