Toronto and Montreal have become important worldwide animation production centers in recent years.

Canada’s largest animation house is Nelvana Ltd. of Toronto, which has been supplying U.S. networks with kids’ fare for a couple of decades.

Cinar Films sells most of its animated programming to U.S. cable webs, and the Montreal-based producer/distrib also has long-term relationships with broadcasters in Europe and Asia.

Montreal is also home to smaller animation, producers like Desclez Prods., which was recently acquired by Malofilm.

Walt Disney recently announced it would be opening a Canadian studio in January, with offices in Toronto and Vancouver. Walt Disney Animation Canada will specialize in direct-to-video programming.
