Another good boom for digital entertainment and BC’s film and television industry is on the way.
DHX Media has two facilities in Vancouver which produce some of the industry’s best 2D and 3D animation. The company is further investing into Vancouver by building a new state-of-the-art 60,000 square foot studio to consolidate its West Coast operations and some 700 personnel. Other creative teams are based in Toronto and Halifax.

The kids and family entertainment studio’s new facility is also being matched with a rebranding to solidify it as a global leader.
“The reorganization of this business unit cements DHX Media’s dedication to producing outstanding original content. We’re excited to launch DHX Studios under this strong management group, and to be bringing our 2D and 3D Vancouver animation teams together into one facility.” – Steven DeNure, President and COO of DHX Media
The content-creation arm of the company, now DHX Studios “unites development, production and interactive under a veteran management team”. DHX productions have included Teletubbies and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
