10 famous movies you didn’t know were filmed in CanadaCanadaCanada US film companiesCanadian locationsmoviesTorontoToronto Works Department
US film companies often have chosen to film US movies in Canadian locations but have disguised that fact by changing mailboxes, license plates and the ilk.
There’s even been a story around that one time, an American crew was filming in Toronto and spread garbage around the streets to make it look like a big US city; then they went for lunch and by the time they came back, the Toronto Works Department had picked up all the trash. That certainly wouldn’t happen today (mainly because Toronto has it’s own trash now), but back then, Torontians were proud of that story.
