I would like to film using a drone.
Drone flying is a popular hobby and useful in many fields of work. However, they also pose risks and can disturb wildlife and visitors. For these reasons, Parks Canada strictly limits the use of drones.
All Parks Canada places are “no drone zones” for recreational use. Flying a drone without park or site approval may result in law enforcement action and a fine of up to $25 000. Please leave your drone at home.
Field Unit Superintendents may authorize limited use of drones for:
- natural and cultural resource management
- public safety
- law enforcement
- park/site management purposes (including filming and photography for outreach, education and promotional purposes)
Film and photography
You must identify the desire to fly a drone in your Film or Photography Permit application.
