“Significant changes in digital technologies have influenced the film industry and the public’s access to film content and film rating information. As a result, the government identified a need to review Ontario’s Film Classification Act, 2005 (Act) and find ways to modernize the legal requirements to better reflect today’s film market. A key priority for the government is to reduce unnecessary and duplicative burden for businesses while film classification information continues to be made available to the public.” Modernizing the Film Classification Act, 2005 - Consultation Paper, Ministry of Government and Consumer Services, September 27, 2019.

The Ministry of Government and Consumer Services Policy is undergoing a consultation process that seeks feedback on how to modernize the Act and develop a current and efficient policy framework for film classification.
