Canadaâ??s world-leading subsidy policy attracts new powerhouse studio

Ubisoft expands Canadian empire

Global game publisher Ubisoft has further bolstered its presence in the subsidy-friendly East-Canadian region by establishing a new studio in Toronto.

Ubisoft already has studios in Quebec and Vancouver. In fact, its Quebec operations boasts over 2000 staff, split between two studios; one deep in Montreal city, the other on Quebec’s outskirts.

Though that number suggests astronomical overheads, Canada’s world-beating tax-relief policies – where developers can claim back as much as 40 per cent of total development costs – is visibly encouraging publishers such as Ubisoft to focus more and more of its resources in the region.
