He is trapped in the picturesque village of Beacon Hills, where he meets Foster, a local veterinarian. Ethan had no choice but to stay in the village until Christmas due to heavy snowfall, so he was burned because he could not work.
But slowly, Ethan finds a loving companion in the beloved stray dog and he also gets close to Foster. He should no longer allow his addiction to cover up the chances of finding true love. Set against the backdrop of a beautiful Christmas village, the movie illustrates the importance of compassion and what really matters in life.

A Christmas Stray Movie Filming Locations
“A Christmas Stray” was filmed entirely in Ontario, especially in Ottawa and Almonte. Most of the principal photography for the movie took place in July 2021, when most of the holiday films were shot in the area. Ontario is a geographically rich province with a variety of landscapes such as arable land, dense forest and major rivers, and lakes. In addition, it is technically well-equipped for television and movie production and has an available network of talented staff and cast.
All of these factors, as well as significant tax breaks on filming provided by the authorities, made Ontario a high-demand construction site. TV series such as ‘The Boys’ and ‘Titans’ as well as ‘It’, ‘Let It Snow’ and ‘Christmas Inheritance’ are some of the films shot in this province.
The capital of Canada is Ottawa, which serves as an important filming location for A Christmas Stray. This riverside town is known as the Capital of the World of Christmas Cinema because most Christmas movies are shot in this area. The city’s picturesque heritage buildings and neighborhoods, as well as the densely forested areas, help to create a Christmas spirit even in the summer.
Byward Market, Cumberland Heritage Village Museum, Elgin Street, and Chatou Lourier are some of the most popular filming locations for Christmas movies in Ottawa. Films such as ‘Let’s Get Marriage’, ‘A Christmas Village Romance’ and ‘Boyfriends of Christmas Past’ were also shot in the city.
Portions of “A Christmas Stray” were filmed in Almont, Lanark County, 29 miles from Ottawa. The former textile mill town is rich with 19th-century historical sites and 1950s eateries, making it a major filming location for holiday movies in the area. The festive city also has a shooting site for films such as “Fatman”, “A Cheerful Christmas” and “The Christmas Setup”.
