NOHFC provides assistance in the form of a conditional grant up to 50% of eligible costs to a maximum of $500,000. NOHFC funding is based on the project’s level of spending in Northern Ontario and on employment and training opportunities for Northern Ontario residents.
In addition the NOHFC has approved a decision note allowing consideration for television series to be eligible for amounts exceeding the guideline of $500,000.
There is no time limit; however, since the intake rounds are competitive, the NOHFC would like to see that your funding has largely been sourced and applied for, as well as being ready to go to camera in the next several months as opposed to the next few years.
