Using Drones in Filming
The use of drones for filming is increasing throughout the province. When using a drone for filming on location, the production is required to follow all federal regulations issued by Transport Canada, and may be required to include the details (including a flight path) as part of the submission to the permitting authority (ie: city or park).
