On June 8, 2020, the Province of Ontario announced a regional approach to Stage 2 of reopening that includes permitting film and television productions provided they are conducted in compliance with the conditions imposed under the Government of Ontario’s Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act. All enquiries related to film permits can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Background on the Film By-law
Filming activity in Ottawa is governed by the newly developed Film By-law. The new Film By-law is designed to provide a consistent process for the industry when seeking City approvals. It will support Ottawa in becoming a ‘Film Friendly’ destination.
The Film By-law will also provide greater coordination of City services as they relate to filming and help minimize any potential disruption to residents, businesses and institutions during filming events.
No matter the scale of your filming event, Event Central can assist you in determining if you require a film permit.
