[...] A. g l A N C E :. F I l M. A N D. T E l E v I S I o N. P R o D u C T I o N. I N. C A N A D A Total volume of film and television production in Canada, share by segment, 2007/08 The Canadian television production sector was the largest sector in Canada’s film and television production industry in 2007/08, accounting for 39% of the total volume of production. [...] The total volume of Canadian fiction production continued to be comprised largely of production in the television segment and for the English-language market. [...] The drop in production volume was due to a sharp drop in the number of television series produced in this genre by Canadians, and a reduction in the number of large-budget animation series. [...] A more detailed look at the breakdown of children’s and youth production reveals that a large share of the genre’s production in the English-language market can be traced back to the fact that most animation production in the genre is originally produced in English.
