Step 1 - Scouting + Locations Library

Typically, producers hire a location manager or scout to find potential locations for filming. They might visit a specific area looking for suitable sites, or they may use our locations library, which contains close to 18,000 locations from across the province.

Productions working in BC should be registered with Creative BC.

Productions should also inform Creative BC regarding who is scouting locations for their production.

The Provincial Government encourages its property managers to register with Creative BC's Location Library, particularly buildings or other structures (e.g. dam, bridge, ferry terminal).

We also encourage other levels of government and private property managers and owners to register their properties as well.

The first step of location registration is to create a location “photo file” of your property – a virtual tour in pictures.
