CBS Stages Canada opens for business Details Michelle Clancy | 29 September 2019 A year to the day after announcing plans to secure a 260,000 square-foot space located in the city of Mississauga, CBS Corporation has opened CBS Stages Canada, a multi-use production facility that includes six soundstages, production offices, support facilities and auxiliary services for large-scale television and film production. With its new facility 18 miles from downtown Toronto, CBS is the first major US media company to open a branded production entity in Canada. The new facility will provide additional production space for CBS Television Studios’ roster of television programming across broadcast, cable and streaming platforms. Currently, the Studio produces over 70 series, including series for the CBS Television Network, shows for The CW, premium series for the CBS All Access streaming service and a growing roster of programming for networks and platforms outside of CBS, including several throughout Canada. Currently, CBS Television Studios shoots Star Trek: Discovery and In The Dark in Toronto, in addition to several other productions in Canada, including the reboots of Charmed and Nancy Drew. “With the addition of the new studio space, we will be able to diversify and expand in ways that were not previously possible,” said David Stapf, president of CBS Television Studios. “We’ve been producing premium programming in the province since 2002, and we came to the realisation 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.”
