WHY WORK AT CARTOON CONRAD?

Cartoon Conrad is an artist-driven animation production house in Nova Scotia. Our focus is producing world class animated content for episodic television and feature films. Our commitment has always been to create and produce outstanding animated products, providing exceptional service and fostering a supportive and creative environment for our employees.
We are located on a beautiful and secluded woodland property in Beaver Bank near the city of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Centered around a renovated and modernized farmhouse, our project teams operate out of several buildings on a landscaped and private campus, surrounded by tall trees, lakes and a variety of local wildlife.

Although a step away from the urban center, we are minutes from modern services (shopping, apartments, hospitals, theaters, etc.). Commuting is easy, as we have plenty of free parking, and the local transit system stops a stone’s throw from one of our buildings. We even provide a shuttle service between the Lower Sackville Bus terminal and the farm that runs twice daily.
Despite working in a high-tech internationally connected industry, immersed in the latest software and digital equipment, we strive to create a comfortable, natural atmosphere for our staff – taking a break from pushing pixels can be as easy as stepping outside the front door to feed the ducks that freely wander the grounds! Cartoon Conrad is committed to maintaining a strong work/life balance for all our employees, and we believe that great work and creative energies peak in a peaceful environment.
