Jette Studios is a $30 million production studio village in Niverville, Manitoba, Canada is expected to begin construction this summer.

The new studio is set to include a sound stage with large state-of-the-art LED walls. There are also plans for future growth on the site. Due to the studio’s location, productions will receive an extra five per cent rural tax credit through the province.

A media release from the Manitoba government said the 1,700-square-metre facility — dubbed Jette Studios — will create 300 new jobs over three years

Ron Schuler, Member of the Legislative Assembly for the Springfield-Ritchot riding which includes Niverville, says this huge project opens up our horizons and offers us a chance to diversify our economy. 

"This changes the entire narrative for our region. You cover a very heavy growth area. The growth traditionally has been agricultural, and in secondary production which has been fantastic. We've done well! We also do a lot of trucking and there is manufacturing. Never before have we gotten into the arts."

Schuler adds: "This is so important for our region because it takes us beyond what we have done traditionally, and it gets us into non-traditional industries. That is just such good news for all of us."
