Over the years Waterloo Region has been used for the filming of a variety of films and TV shows.

Handmaid’s Tale returns to film in downtown Cambridge

Quote:Filming for the popular series "The Handmaid's Tale" took over the streets in downtown Galt's Queen's Square again Tuesday morning, with the show's signature red coat costumes featured prominently on the set.

Much of the downtown core was closed to traffic and pedestrians for the start of filming Tuesday morning and many Main Street and Queen's Square stores were closed to the public. In fact, the exterior of some shops, including the Grand Café, were completely transformed to help create a war-zone-like atmosphere. Stores closed for filming receive compensation for the closure.


Great seeing Waterloo Region used as filming locations.

Does anyone know what kind of economic impact this typically has?

Handmaid's Tale is perhaps the most notable production, but not the only one to film here. Murdoch Mysteries has repeatedly filmed here, and various other Toronto-based productions have come out here to use unique locations.

There was something in the paper the other day about several things being filmed in Galt at the moment.

There have been a number of shows filmed in Cambridge over the years including one called "Terrific Trucks Save Christmas" (nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award). Interestingly, you can see the Terrific Trucks on Google Maps parked at Queens Square in Galt:

I still think it's awesome that Kitchener City Hall was on at least 2 TV Series, Heroes Reborn and Dan For Mayor.

I think it was also used for fiming scenes of a sci-fi movie a few years back, iirc.
