Have you ever wondered where those impossibly gorgeous forests and landscapes are in Virgin River? Maybe you’ve been wanting to visit some of the quirky destinations in The Umbrella Academy? Or perhaps you have a craving for a prawn taco from that pub in Restaurants on the Edge.
To reveal all, we’re launching a new website — — making it easier for fans both local and from around the world to find and explore amazing Netflix filming locations that all have one thing in common: Canada.
Netflix in Your Neighbourhood provides a window into some of the Canadian cities and towns that have enriched our films and series, and captivated audiences worldwide. Visitors can search filming locations by a film or series title, or by province. Fans can also access directions to these destinations, and see how they’ve been featured on Netflix.
We've filmed hundreds of productions across Canada and the site will feature some current highlights, as well as select new titles, once they are released.
Our productions stretch from Lunenburg, Nova Scotia to Snug Cove, British Columbia and benefit Canadian communities by creating jobs and investments in local businesses while also creating a desire among our members to visit Canada and learn more about our cities, food, wilderness and culture.
A shows that Netflix audiences are 1.8x more likely to have seen Canadian content than those who don’t watch Netflix. And people who have watched Canadian content are 2.1x more likely to say Canada is their #1 travel destination. Take a show like Somebody Feed Phil which has an episode dedicated to Montreal; members who have viewed that episode were 79% more interested in Canada’s food and drink and 76% more interested in Canadian cities.
Through Netflix, members can discover many different parts of Canada, encouraging them to look at these Canadian destinations through a new lens.
Whether you are from Paris, Ontario, or Paris, France, we want to help people fall in love with Canada.
