For more than 40 years — and 20-plus years in Canada — we have provided services to the motion picture, television, event and commercial industries.

Cast & Crew Canada supports the Canadian industry and works both with local payroll as well as U.S. and other foreign entities operating in Canada. We offer several tailored financial services for companies conducting business in Canada, including tax-credit financing and advisement, production-incentive services and full completion bond services and advisement.

Providing superior service and easy-to-use digital products.
