The Squamish-Lillooet Regional District does not currently require filming permits for commercial film productions taking place within the SLRD. This being said, permits may be required by other agencies, such as the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (MFLNRO) and the Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure (MOTI).
We do ask that you advise our Legislative and Corporate Services department of your plans so that we can help you to inform any residents and other stakeholders who may be impacted by the production.

Should your production involve activities taking place on provincial roads, you should contact MOTI to find out what's required. Learn more here.
