Mayor and Council support the film industry in our community and recognize the economic and social benefits.
The Township of Langley expects all production companies and their cast and crews to abide by the Creative BC Film Commission’s Code of Conduct for Cast and Crew, which outlines community expectations when filming in British Columbia.
There may be some disruption to routines during filming. We thank residents, businesses, and visitors for their patience and cooperation when film productions are working in our community.
Film / Screen-based Industry
The Township of Langley is considered to be one of the most film-friendly municipalities in BC’s Lower Mainland. We encourage you to choose our municipality as your film destination.
Each production wishing to film on private or public property must obtain all necessary approved municipal and agency permits in advance of filming. Contact our Film Coordinator at 604.533.6151.
Effective May 27, 2013, the Township of Langley has an updated Filming Guideline and new Filming Policy. Whether this is your first time filming in the Township or you filmed in our community before, familiarize yourself with these. At the time of your next filming application, you must sign acknowledgement of having read and understood both documents.
We offer simple, straightforward processes, timely turnaround, reasonable fees, and client location confidentiality.

Film productions are also responsible to directly negotiate terms and costs associated to use any private property with the owner/occupant. The Township remains external to these private negotiations.
