Peterborough County has been host to many film productions!

We recognize the direct and indirect economic benefits to the community associated with the film and television industry.

Pre-approval of projects ensure that County roads, buildings and property are protected, while supporting this industry.


A number of factors must be considered before approval is granted, including:

  • Liability insurance
  • Impact of filming on staff, visitors, residents and businesses
  • Disruption of traffic
  • Number of production vehicles, cast and crew
  • Stunts or special effects

The Special Event/Film Permit provides guidelines for the assessment and co-ordination of commercial filming projects.
