Is your total payroll for the year over $2 million?
If yes, you'll be required to contribute to the Workforce Skills Development and Recognition Fund (WSDRF)
Are you a foreign producer planning to film in Quebec? Do you expect your total payroll for the year to be over $2 million? If you answered ‘yes’ to both, provincial law requires that you contribute to the development and recognition of skilled labor (The Act to promote workforce skills development and recognition).
An investment equal to at least 1% of your total payroll is required, in training activities designed to develop workers’ skills, within the calendar year your production takes place.
