Manitoba’s Ecozones:
Southern Manitoba
Prairies to Tundra, and All Filmable
Manitoba receives over 2,300 hours of sunlight
annually. Winnipeg residents enjoy up to 16 hours
of sunlight daily during the summer months.
Prairies: Southwestern Manitoba. Dominated by
farmland, and is also the most populated ecozone
in Manitoba.
Summer: The peak season for sunflowers is the
second week of July through to the first week of
August. The wheat fields turn a golden colour
in early August. The wheat fields are harvested
mid-August to mid-September.
Boreal Plains: Central / Western Manitoba. Lowlying valleys and plains with the majority covered
by forests.
Boreal Shield: Central / Eastern Manitoba. This
rolling landscape encompasses the Canadian
Shield and the boreal forest.
Autumn: Typically, the leaves begin to change
colour by early-September, through to midOctober. By the end of October, most of the leaves
have fallen off the trees.
Taiga Shield: Northern Manitoba. Bordering the
northern edge of the boreal forest, this ecozone is
dotted with lakes and wetlands.
Winter: The first snowfall can vary greatly from year
to year. Typically, snow begins to fall in November
and there is usually snow cover by December.
Hudson Plains: Northeastern Manitoba. Flat landscape dominated by wetlands.
Spring: By mid-March, the spring melt starts and
snow coverage begins to fluctuate. Lakes are generally not safe to film on after mid-March and the
snow is generally gone by the middle of April. The
trees begin to bud and turn green between late-April
and mid-May, depending on the year and region.

Seasonal Information
•Manitoba has four distinct seasons. Summers
are warm and sunny, with extended daylight
hours and an extremely long magic hour. Winter
days are bright and refreshing and the winter
months are perfect for night shoots.
Northern Manitoba (Churchill)
The sun’s rays are reflected off the snow and ice
due to Churchill’s latitude, meaning low temperatures all year, but the proximity to Hudson’s Bay
moderates the temperature in summer months.
•Most of Manitoba’s 100,000 lakes are frozen
over from approximately mid-December to midMarch, with January and February being the
best months for shooting on lakes.
Summer: The majority of Churchill’s precipitation
falls during the summer. Mid-June through August
is Beluga whale season.
• Manitoba has a seasonably dry climate in both
winter and summer.
Autumn: October and November are prime months
for viewing polar bears as ice begins to freeze.
Snow begins to accumulate.
• Manitoba’s southern and northern regions have
distinctly different seasons.
Winter: Snow cover is 30-40 cm. Northern Lights are
often seen in the clear Northern skies, peaking in March.
Spring: Snow begins to melt and is completely gone
by June. Tundra flowers being to bud in late spring.

Financial Incentives
Manitoba Film & Video Production Tax Credit
(Cost-Of-Salaries Tax Credit)
1. Cost-of-Salaries Tax Credit
Q:Why is Manitoba considered the leader
in tax credits?
A:NO application processing fees
NO content requirements
NO copyright ownership requirements
NO co-production requirements (you are not
obliged to work with a Manitoba company, but
you would benefit if they brought frequent
filmer bonus, MB producer bonus and
provincial equity to the table)
NO funding caps per production or per production
company (the higher your Manitoba labour
expenditures, the higher your tax credit will be!)
NO caps on annual funds available (Manitoba’s
tax credit is a rebate, not a finite fund, which
means you’ll never have to wait for a new fiscal
year to apply for your rebate)
NO minimum or maximum budget requirements
NO “first time producer” requirements
Q:Not a Frequent Filmer yet?
A:NO PROBLEM! Producers can access the extra
10% by working with a production company
that has the frequent filmer status.
(Manitoba Film & Video Production Tax Credit)
One of Canada’s leading fully refundable labourbased tax credits of up to 65% calculated on
eligible Manitoba labour expenditures (base
rate of 45% plus eligible bonuses: 10% Frequent
Filming Bonus, 5% Rural Bonus, and 5% Manitoba
Producer Bonus).
2. Cost-of-Production Tax Credit
(Manitoba Film & Video Production Tax Credit)
The highest spend-based credit in Canada provides production companies with a 30% fully
refundable corporate income tax credit calculated on eligible Manitoba expenditures, including
labour and deemed labour, if applicable.
3. Development Loans
For projects that involve a Manitoba co-producer,
Manitoba Film & Music development loans can
be applied for indigenous, national and international co-ventures or co-productions. Access
to Manitoba Film & Music development loans
does NOT require that the project meet Canadian
Content Requirements or co-treaty conditions.
4. Production Equity Investment
For projects that involve a Manitoba co-producer,
Manitoba Film & Music Production Equity
Investments can be applied to indigenous, national
and international co-ventures or co-productions.
Access to Manitoba Film & Music production equity
does NOT require that the project meet Canadian
Content Requirements, or co-treaty conditions.

Manitoba Film & Video Production Tax Credit
Q:What is the Tax credit?
A:The Manitoba Film and Video Production Tax
Credit is a fully refundable corporate income
tax credit provided to qualifying producers for
qualifying projects.
The tax credit is provided to the same extent
for all corporate taxpayers, regardless of the
income tax level or marginal tax rate.
One must file a Canadian corporate income tax
return in order to receive the credit.
Q:Who can apply?
A:The applicant must:
a) be a taxable Canadian corporation,
incorporated under the laws of Canada
or a province of Canada;
b) have a permanent establishment in
Manitoba;
c) be producing an eligible film in the course of
a film or video production business that is
its primary business; and
18
TA X C R E D I T E L I G I B I L I T Y I N FO R M AT I O N
d) pay at least 25% of its T4 Summary for
the fiscal year of the production to
eligible employees and eligible non-resident
employees, for work performed in Manitoba,
except documentaries where the work can
be performed anywhere.
Employees are defined as individuals who
receive income tax deductions at source (i.e. a T4
is provided directly by the applicant company).
Contracted individuals and loan out corporations
would not be in receipt of a T4, and therefore,
should not be included in this calculation.
Q:How is permanent establishment defined?
A:EASILY. Permanent establishment is defined as
a place of business with at least one employee
or agent established with a general authority to
contract on behalf of the corporation and with
substantial machinery or equipment.
Basically, this means that the production
company must have, during principle
photography, office space / trailers in
Manitoba, a producer, director or production
manager in Manitoba (or anyone else who can
contract on behalf of the applicant company)
and equipment in Manitoba.
Q:Do I need a Manitoba company to apply?
A:NO, you do not need a Manitoba company;
however, the applicant company must be
incorporated in Canada and at least 25% of the
employee salaries paid during the year of the
production must be paid to employees who are
residents of Manitoba for work performed in
Manitoba. (Really not complicated – stick with
us and we’ll explain.)
Q:My company is not from Manitoba; therefore,
how can I possibly satisfy the 25% rule?
A:EASILY. A non-Manitoba company can satisfy
the 25% rule by doing the following:
• Incorporate a taxable single-purpose
company in Manitoba or Canada.
• Run all of its Manitoba expenses through
this single-purpose company.
• Apply for the Manitoba Tax Credit through
this single-purpose company.
• Hire at least one Manitoba resident as an
employee for work to be done in Manitoba
You may hire additional people as employees;
however, 25% of the sum of these salaries
must be paid to employees who are residents
of Manitoba for work performed in Manitoba
(for documentaries, the work does not have to
be performed in Manitoba).
Q:What projects are eligible to apply?
A:Eligible projects include those which are fully
financed:
• Television Movies
•Documentaries
• Feature Films
• Dramatic Series
•Variety
•Animation
• Children’s Programming
• Music Programming
• Information Series
• Digital Productions
• CD-ROM Productions
Q:Are there content requirements?
A:NO, there are no Canadian or Manitoba
content requirements for the Manitoba Film
and Video Production Tax Credit. Everyone
is rewarded equally based on the amount of
eligible Manitoba labour expenditures (for the
Cost-of-Salaries Tax Credit) or the amount of
eligible Manitoba expenditures (for the Costof-Production Tax Credit).
Q:Is there a time limit for applying for my tax
credit?
A:Yes. Part A and Part B tax credit applications
must be received by Manitoba Film & Music
within 30 months after the end of the fiscal
year in which principle photography began.
Q:Will Manitoba Film & Music prepare tax credit
estimates?
A:Manitoba Film & Music will not prepare tax
credit estimates. We only provide feedback
on the Part A application once an applicant
formally applies to our office. However, once
you have read the Manitoba Film and Video
Production Tax Credit Guidelines, we will be
happy to answer any questions you may have.
Q:How do I determine the eligibility of labour
expenses by budget category?
A:An Excel worksheet is available on the
Manitoba Film & Music website
(mbfilmmusic.ca) in the Tax Credit section.
This worksheet follows an industry standard
budget template, allows you to insert the
relevant Manitoba labour amounts per
budget line item, and indicates the eligibility
of the various expenses. This worksheet is
a guide only; the guidelines, legislation, and
regulations will prevail.

Residents and by the amount of total eligible
Manitoba labour expenditures.
Q: Are there any circumstances where a nonresident’s salary may be eligible for a tax credit?
A:In the event that a crew member is brought
in because there is no willing, available and
qualified Manitoban to fill the position, a
special bonus, the deeming provision may
allow the salary of the non-Manitoba resident
to be “deemed” eligible for the tax credit.
For deeming to apply:
It is ONLY the relevant unions and guilds who
verify that there are no willing, available and
qualified Manitobans to fill the positions, and then
if in agreement, sign off on the deeming forms.
Once an individual has been deemed by the
respective union or guild, the production must
train at least one Manitoban per non-resident
being deemed. The training must be approved
by the relevant labour organization and Film
Training Manitoba (if applicable).
Q:Is there a maximum number of positions that
can be deemed?
A:No, there is no maximum number of positions
that can be deemed; however, there is a cap on
the total amount of non-resident salaries that
will be allowed. The cap is determined by the
ratio of Manitoba Trainees per Non-Manitoba
Amount of Training
Corresponding
Deeming Cap
If one (1) Manitoba
resident is trained
per non-resident
during the course of
the non-residents’
employment
Cap set at 10%
of Total Eligible
Manitoba labour
expenditures
If two (2) Manitoba
residents are trained
per non-resident
during the course for
the non-residents’
employment
Cap set at 30%
of Total Eligible
Manitoba labour
expenditures
Q: Which positions can be deemed?
A:Below the line, technical positions can be
deemed. As well, Line Producer and Director of
Photography positions are eligible for deeming.
Q:Are there positions that cannot be deemed?
A:Actors, Producers, Creative Producers, Writers,
and Directors cannot be deemed. In general,
positions that are above the line are not deemable.
20
TA X C R E D I T D E E M I N G P ROV I S I O N S
A:Prior to going into prep, ensure that your
deeming needs are known so that you may
set-up the training so as to maximize
your tax credit.
If your non-resident salaries do not exceed the
10% cap, then you only need to match one (1)
Manitoba trainee per non-resident.
If your non-resident salaries exceed the 10%
cap, then it is in your best interest to match
two (2) Manitoba trainees per non-resident so
as to qualify for the 30% cap.
Q:What are the steps to deeming?
A:A complete description of the deeming process is
provided in the Deeming Section of the Manitoba
Film and Video Production Tax Credit Guidelines.
The guidelines are available for download at
mbfilmmusic.ca under the tax credit link.
Q:Who will help me with my deeming application
and questions?
A:The relevant unions and Film Training
Manitoba (FTM) will be responsible for training
placements and approvals. Manitoba Film &
Music will work with the Production Company
to co-ordinate the paperwork and facilitate the
deeming application process.
Q:Who decides which positions will be approved
for deeming?
A:The unions and guilds are responsible for
signing-off on all deeming requests. Manitoba
Film & Music only acts as an intermediary
between the production company and the
labour and training organizations to ensure
that the deeming paperwork is sent to the
appropriate parties.
Q:Who initiates the deeming request and
training discussion?
A:The Production Company MUST indicate its
deeming requirements to Manitoba Film &
Music and should do so PRIOR to the start of
principle photography. All deeming requests
must be signed off by a Manitoba related union
and / or guild.
Q:How Does Deeming Work?
A:All Deemed positions must be accompanied by
a valid training opportunity on the production.
The Manitoba trainee can be in a different
department, but there must be at least one
Manitoba trainee per non-resident being deemed.
Q:At what stage of production do I need to concern
myself with deeming and tax credit criteria to
ensure I maximize the tax credit potential?

Manitoba for work performed in Manitoba (for
documentaries, the work does not have to be
performed in Manitoba).
Q:How does the Federal Tax Credit work with the
Manitoba Tax Credit?
A:As with all other provincial tax credits, the
Manitoba Tax Credit will grind the Federal Tax
Credits. In other words, the Manitoba Tax Credit
will be subtracted from eligible Canadian
labour or eligible Canadian production costs
(whichever is applicable) before the 16% or
25% federal tax credit rate is applied.
Q:Who administers the Federal Tax Credit?
A:The two Federal Tax Credits, the Canadian Film
or Video Production Tax Credit (CPTC) and the
Film or Video Production Services Tax Credit
(PSTC), are administered through the Canadian
Audio-Visual Certification Office (CAVCO).
Tel: 888.433.2200 or pch.gc.ca/cavco
Q:Are there advantages to working with a
Manitoba company?
A: The advantages to working with a Manitoba company:
• A Manitoba company that is already in
Frequent Filming Bonus status can bring an
extra 10% in tax credits to the production;
• A Manitoba Producer can bring an extra 5%
in tax credits through the Manitoba
Producer Bonus
• A Manitoba company can apply for equity
financing from Manitoba Film & Music.
• The value of local experience
Q:Do I have to worry about Copyright / Corporate Caps?
A:No copyright ownership is required and there
are no corporate caps regarding the number of
applications or the amount of tax credit available.
Q:What if I have to film outside of Manitoba?
A:As this credit is labour-based, filming outside
of the province is allowable within the spirit
and intent of the Act, recognizing that certain
productions require shooting outside of
Manitoba. However, keep in mind that a
minimum of 25% of employee salaries paid
during the fiscal year of the production must
be paid to employees who are residents of

Reflecting Manitoba’s diverse population,
content is produced in English, French and
Aboriginal languages. Open to new experiences,

HISTORY, CULTURE
AND THE ARTS
Manitoba has a rich and well-preserved cultural
heritage that results in usable and accessible
resources for film and television. In addition to
our turn-of-the-century architecture - historical
props, clothing and cars are readily available.
Known as one of the cultural capitals of
Canada, Winnipeg’s world-class arts and
culture scene spans all disciplines of visual,
performing and literary arts. Both the
Royal Winnipeg Ballet and the Winnipeg
Contemporary Dancers have acclaimed
professional dance schools. A plethora of
professional theatres including the Royal
Manitoba Theatre Centre, Prairie Theatre
Exchange and Manitoba Theatre for Young
People have fostered a highly-skilled actor
base. Manitoba also has the greatest number
95
of musicians per capita than any other
province in Canada.
Manitoba is an incredibly diverse province
that celebrates a range of languages and
ethnicities. Our vibrant Francophone and
Aboriginal populations play a major role in
the film and television production industry.
Manitoba is home to one of the largest
Aboriginal-owned production companies
in Canada and the largest Francophone
production company outside of Quebec.
