Ottawa's film scene is one step closer to having its own hub in the region. 

On Thursday, the National Capital Commission approved the proposal from the Ottawa Film Office to redevelop land and build a soundstage campus and creative hub. 

The $40-million project is in partnership with Toronto's TriBro Studios and is expected to create 500 construction jobs and bring in more than 500 full time film, TV and animation industry jobs as well. 

The NCC land approved for redevelopment is located on the Greenbelt Research Farm, just southwest of West Hunt Club Road and Woodroffe Avenue.
