Netflix in Your Neighbourhood is a new website that makes it easier for fans both local and from around the world to find and explore Netflix filming locations that all have one thing in common: Canada.
Netflix in Your Neighbourhood provides a window into the Canadian cities and towns that have been featured in the streaming service’s films and series. Visitors to the site 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.
Netflix says it has filmed hundreds of productions across Canada and the site will feature some current highlights, as well as select new titles, once they are released.
In a press release announcing the new website, Netflix cited a recent study that shows that Netflix audiences are 1.8 times more likely to have seen Canadian content than those who don’t watch Netflix. And people who have watched Canadian content are 2.1 times more likely to say Canada is their #1 travel destination. It gave the example of a show like Somebody Feed Phil which has an episode dedicated to Montreal; members who have viewed that episode were 79 per cent more interested in Canada’s food and drink and 76 per cent more interested in Canadian cities.
Whether you are from Paris, Ontario, or Paris, France, Netflix says it wants to help people fall in love with Canada.
