NowGamer: Sandra Pupatello, Minister for Economic Development and Trade for the Ontario Government has spoken exclusively to NowGamer about the recently announced deal that will the see the Canadian province invest $263 million CAD in Ubisoft's new Toronto-based studio.
What's the background to the deal?
We've had a digital media tax credit for some time. Recently we've continued to ramp it up, and we've watched what our competitors are doing – we know we've got to at least match what other competitive jurisdictions are doing in terms of incentives. If we can at least match it, we hope we have an edge when it comes to the talent pool that these companies are looking for.
