Strathcona is a residential neighbourhood with strong family and community ties. While we appreciate the economic importance of the film industry and support the idea of using Strathcona for location filming, we need to know that the film industry appreciates the unique nature of our neighbourhood and addresses our concerns.


Except under extraordinary circumstances no filming should be scheduled during statutory holidays, Chinese New Year's, Hallowe'en and the local schools' Sports Days. Filming may be restricted in MacLean Park from May through September.
