ESAC is working with Nordicity – one of Canada’s top strategy and economics consultancies serving the digital industries – to carry out a study of the video game industry in Canada. We need your studio’s help to gather crucial data which will quantify the size and economic contribution of our sector.

The study will update key stats from a similar study conducted by ESAC in 2011, which has become the benchmark for both industry and governments to evaluate the size and impact of the Canadian video game industry. This year, we will again measure the size, composition and economic contribution of this industry to the Canadian economy, while also focusing on the effect tax credits are having on studios’ ability to do business in Canada. The study will also gauge industry perceptions of ESAC in an effort to serve a more diverse membership base more effectively.

The Survey can be found  at and  shouldn’t take much more than 30 minutes for you to complete.
