CBS Corporation opened CBS Stages Canada yesterday, a “multi-use production facility that includes six soundstages, production offices, support facilities and auxiliary services for large-scale television and film production.”
The 260,000 square-foot space is located in Mississauga, which is eighteen miles from downtown Toronto, Canada.
“CBS is a global company that has had a storied history and broad footprint throughout the provinces, both as a producer and distributor. With the addition of the new studio space, we will be able to diversify and expand in ways that were not previously possible,” said Armando Nuñez, President and Chief Executive Officer, CBS Global Distribution Group.
“We’ve been producing premium programming in the province since 2002,” said David Stapf, President of CBS Television Studios; “and we came to the realization that we not only needed additional production space, but that Mississauga, with its strong production infrastructure and long history of crafts expertise, was the perfect location for our international expansion.”
Some of the Star Trek: Discovery actors were in attendance at the ribbon-cutting ceremony. They included: Sonequa Martin-Green, Michelle Yeoh, Mary Wiseman, Wilson Cruz, Anthony Rapp, and David Ajala.
