Maple Ridge provides friendly one-stop service for the film industry. In addition to processing all the necessary applications and permits for filming, the Film Liaison is an accessible resource to find and book that perfect location for your production. Also, we are one of the closest communities to Vancouver that allow productions to take advantage of the maximum tax credits.

The City of Maple Ridge’s Film Liaison helps your production company to:
  • Access civic services
  • Get film activity permits and other related permits suited to your production's specific needs
  • Book your proposed filming locations in our parks and facilities
  • Approve location requests to film on streets, parks, or other City properties in ways that respect our residents and businesses

Filming Requirements


Filming on both private and public property requires a film permit. Each filming location requires at least one film permit.
  1. We prepare your permit in consultation with your location manager to specify all the activities that will affect the specified location.
  2. We issue permits to your company upon giving a final approval of all your activities.
  3. Your senior production staff must review the permit before filming begins.
  4. Your location manager or assistant location manager must be on location during filming.
