Videos, Filming, and Using Drones
If you wish to film or take commercial photos on a Parks Canada site, you must communicate directly with the site in question to get more information on required permits and related fees.
For filming that does not require special access or affect normal site operations, a simple declaration must be completed. For more information, visit A guide to film/photo shoots at Parks Canada. We also recommend you take notice of the filming suggested best practices.
Furthermore, please note the recreational use of drones is forbidden on Parks Canada sites. If you don’t have a permit or special permission to fly your drone on a Parks Canada site, please leave your drone at home. Learn more about drone usage rules.
