2008 Canadian Interactive Digital Media report released

The Canadian Interactive Alliance released the complete results of its 2008 Canadian Interactive Industry Profile (CIIP) report today. Beware – it’s a 154 page PDF.

For 2008, the CIIP study looked only at firms that derived more than 50% of their revenue from interactive digital media work. Overall, the 2008 CIIP estimates the number of interactive media companies in Canada at 2,960, collectively employing between 51,000 and 52,500 Canadians. The estimated revenue generated by these companies is $4.7 Billion annually, with $3.8 Billion of that coming from interactive digital media projects, and $900 million from other forms of media and entertainment.

Take some of the findings with a grain of salt – Techvibes was recognized as an Industry Association.
