Quebec film location permits are required for filming on public property. There are three film offices that can issue permits, as well as various organizations such as national parks and municipalities. Getting the licence is relatively easy and we are able to do it for you. One of the conditions for obtaining the permit is to have sufficient insurance. Our insurance is able to cover your productions in Canada.
- Fast permit delivery – Complex or simple we quickly obtain the required permits
- Contacts and resources – we know where to go and who to talk to
- Insurances – All the elements required to get things done
Quebec is divided into several administrative regions, each with its constraints and demands regarding cinematographic or documentary productions. With all these film locations in Quebec, we have established over the years excellent business relationships with the various administrations in these regions.
Locations Scouting Services
The teams of our locations scouting services are always on the lookout for new trends as well as filming locations that have not been used during previous filming. With a territory as large as Quebec, we organize several times a year “research expedition” to the four corners of the province as well as in the other territories that we cover in Canada.
These research expeditions are not only dedicated to filming locations, but allow us to improve our database of information that can be used by our research department. All this information is particularly useful for documentary series, travel programs, informative videos or for NGOs and private or government companies for the creation of various videos.
When to Shoot
Film productions in Quebec are mainly made between April and November. The Quebec climate is mild, with four very distinct seasons. Temperatures can vary between +35 degrees Celsius in the summer to -40 degrees in the winter. Due to Quebec’s large geographical spread, temperatures from North to South greatly vary. Our team has specialized equipment for cold weather, and is able to accompany you in the cold of winter.
- All year long services – From +35 Celsius to -40 we are ready
- Weather protected equipment – Keep all gears protected
- Get ready – Our crew is up to the task.
However, good news for all those who are concerned by extremely low temperatures: our cold is actually very dry, making the Quebec temperatures, oddly enough, far more tolerable than the cold and humid environments in some countries in Europe.
