The Market for Game Designers in Quebec

The Market for Game Designers in Quebec

The Market for Game Designers in Quebec

Quebec's vibrant game industry has been thriving since the early 1990s, establishing itself as a powerhouse in North America's video game industry. With the continuous evolution of technology, the industry has seen significant transformations. While traditional AAA console games remain popular, the rise of e-sports, mobile games, and AR/VR has captivated a new generation of designers and gamers. Through these changes, Quebec has emerged as a global hub for entertainment and technology, offering game designers a plethora of opportunities.


According to Investissement Québec, the province is home to over 250 game studios that produce world-class games, generate billions in annual revenue, and employ thousands of people across Quebec. Notably, some of the top video game companies, such as Ubisoft, Beenox, and Eidos-Montréal, are based in Quebec, contributing significantly to the industry’s growth.


Results from the Entertainment Software Association of Canada's 2021 industry survey reveal that video game companies contribute $5.5 billion to Canada’s GDP and employ 32,000 full-time professionals, a 17 percent increase since 2019. Whether you're just starting out or advancing your skills, the game design industry in Quebec offers a wealth of exciting career prospects!
