Join Interactive Ontario on February 12th at Keyframe Digital in St. Catharines as we bring i-ON Regions, a free one-day seminar focused on IDM tax credits and special funding programs, to your neighbourhood. Limited seating available.
Whether creating video games, transmedia, e‚ÄĎLearning, web series, mobile content or other IDM products, the challenge of obtaining financing is by far the most common barrier to the growth of Ontario’s IDM companies. Are you aware of the tax incentives that are available such as the Ontario Interactive Digital Media Tax Credit (OIDMTC) at a rate of up to 40% and the Federal Scientific Research & Experimental Development Tax Credit (SR&ED) at a rate of up to 35%? Is your company taking advantage of these incentives?
At the second session, explore the various funding programs available to interactive media companies and learn tips and tricks that will ensure you’re submitting an air-tight application. Program administrators from the Ontario Media Development Corporation, the Canada Media Fund and the Bell Fund will be on hand to offer advice.
Join us for an in-depth and interactive discussion and analysis of these financing options, including the types of activities that they are intended to support and the impact it can have on your business.
