The Ministerial Advisory Council on Interactive Digital Media (IDM) submitted its final recommendations to Minister MacLeod (Heritage, Sports, Tourism, and Culture Industries — MHSTC).
These recommendations address short-term and immediate actions that can be taken to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the IDM industry (short cash runway is the most critical risk) as well as measures that should be implemented to ensure the recovery and growth of our industry in Ontario. The recommendations documents have not been made public yet by the Ontario government. That said, they are in line with IO’s advocacy priorities and timeline at the provincial level. IO and the IDM Council members want to thank the industry for your participation in IO’s weekly town hall meetings. It has been and will continue to be instrumental in crafting recommendations that are well-tailored to our industry.
