Movies That Were Filmed in Canada

Thanks to Canada’s lackluster loonie, many Hollywood productions – both TV and film – are filmed in Canada. In fact, over 1,500 Hollywood flicks were shot in Canada over the last decade. Vancouver and Toronto are the two most used Canadian locations. One for its resemblance to middle America, and the other for its uncanny similarities to New York City.

While Canada is beautiful, the fact of the matter is that studios save a lot of money – I’m talking millions of dollars – by filming here. You’d be surprised to know that some really memorable movies were shot in Canada. Let’s take a look at a few.

Deadpool (2016) and Deadpool 2 (2018)

Filmed in Vancouver and championed by Ryan Reynolds – who happens to be Canadian – Deadpool went on to become a huge hit, breaking records around the world. The sequel was just as successful, and a third is on the way.

It’s an R-rated superhero comedy following the titular Deadpool, also known as Wade Wilson. The film pokes fun at many Marvel movie tropes while still having the action-packed, over the top fight scenes that fans have come to love.
