Travel Zone FAQ
Any travel from within the studio zone (either Victoria or Vancouver) to a location outside the zone is subject to travel time and mileage from the edge of the applicable studio zone.
For productions shooting outside the Vancouver or Victoria studio zone at a distant location, travel time and mileage would be payable, however a Producer may establish a distant location zone with a radius of 25km, provided the newly established zone does not overlap with the existing zones. Travel within that distant location zone would not be subject to travel time and mileage.
The BCMPA allows for “local hires” when shooting outside the Vancouver or Victoria studio zone.
