CION & MFM work within the boundaries of Northern Ontario which includes a population of approximately 760,000 citizens, in an area the size of the state of Texas.  The region's boundaries stretch from Parry Sound in the south, the James Bay coast in the north, Mattawa in the east, and west to Kenora.

Northern Ontario is a viable location for film and television productions because of its wide variety of locations such as mines, thousands of lakes, valleys, mountains, small city centers, scenery and a multitude of unique modern and historic buildings.  

We are here to help you pick the best shooting location for your project. Please feel free to give us a
call or send us an email to help figure out the best match for your project in Northern Ontario.
