Introduction: Ontario's Creative Cluster

Table of contents

The future of the entertainment media world is taking shape today. Ontario companies in the Creative Cluster are recognized around the world for their ability to entertain, inform and inspire people – on the screen, on the page, on the stage and in an exploding array of mobile digital devices.

It also includes the supporting industries which enable the production and distribution of creative content. Figure 1 (below) provides a visual representation of the broad definition of the Creative Cluster:
