With the exception of news media, any person or company wishing to access Town of Banff municipal property (including all public property) for the purposes of commercial photography, video, film and television—including documentaries—must obtain a film permit from the Town of Banff.
Airspace within the boundaries of the Town of Banff is restricted due to local heliports. Therefore it is not permitted to fly drones inside the Town of Banff. You can see the no fly zone on this interactive map. Special arrangements with Transport Canada and Parks Canada may be made to fly drones within the national park.
