Checklist for Locations

Message to TALs/Film Office Admin

We've created a checklist with related links and timeline restrictions just for you. If you're not sure where the City boundaries are, we've got a map for that.

Here is the link to our Film Permit Application (a new form per location please) and to our Filming Procedures

When your permit is APPROVED we will need the following:

  • Certificate of Insurance (Naming The City of North Vancouver additional insured)
  • $5,000 Security Deposit (cheque payable to City of North Vancouver). We can draw on this amount for your fees if that is your production's preference.<
  • If you need on-street parking please send your requirements ASAP
    Please show on a Google Map (or even better, on our CityMap which shows house numbers, etc.)
    IMPORTANT: City bylaw requires residents to have 72‑hours notice for removal of on-street parking*.
    We need 5 working days to print and sign on‑street parking for filming.  (*there are areas with exceptions – but not many)
  • Planning on closing a street or intermittent, short duration road closures?
    If so, please complete Filming Street Closure Form (ASAP, as it can take time to get approval)
  • A completed Electrical Permit Application (if using an electrical generator on site) and your Electrical Contractor Authorization Declaration (one per location please).
    Cost: one year is $750 and a one-time use permit is $102.
  • Your letter to residents and/or businesses for our approval.
    Note: This has be delivered BEFORE we put out the 'no parking' signage.



To booking RCMP personnel contact the RCMP at  (please copy as we will be charging for the hours). The North Vancouver RCMP need five working days notice to fill filming requests.
