Park permits are required for commercial filming in Yukon Parks (including campgrounds).
Regional Superintendents, located in Dawson City (Klondike Region), Whitehorse (Liard Region) and Haines Junction (Kluane Region), can review commercial filming applications and, when appropriate, authorize a park permit.
The Tombstone Park management plan, currently under negotiation between Yukon Government and Tr’ondëk Hwëch’, has specific provisions for commercial filming in the park.
While the management plan is under negotiation, the THFN Final Agreement legally binds Yukon Government to manage the park according to the park objectives contained in the final agreement. This includes the protection of the area’s natural, historic and cultural resources.
By receiving advance word of the basic details of proposed commercial filming activity, Yukon Parks in collaboration with the Tr'ondek Hwech'in First Nation can alert your film company of any special conditions such as areas or critical times to avoid.
The following areas have been designated territorial parks in Yukon:
- Tombstone Territorial Park
- Ni’iinlii’Njik (Fishing Branch) Territorial Park
- Herschel Island - Territorial Park
- Coal River Springs Territorial Park
More parks will be officially designated under First Nations Land Claims agreements in the future. Please contact the Yukon Parks Branch for the most current information.
Please contact Parks staff when you are considering filming in any of Yukon’s Territorial Parks.
