Mississauga is a very popular destination for filmmakers and the Mississauga Film & Television Office is committed to further development of this industry.
All permits to film on City of Mississauga streets, property and parks are issued by the Mississauga Film and Television Office.
Filming brings substantial revenue to the community and it is part of our broader Culture strategy. Production companies pay residents and businesses for the rental of their properties; they use our hotels and restaurants and, many of the professionals in the filmmaking community live right here in Mississauga.
Mississauga boasts hundreds of unique filming locations and attracts dozens of film and television productions each year.
The Mississauga Film and Television Office works in collaboration with local film scouts to facilitate locations for producers, filmmakers and location managers considering Mississauga as a filming location.
Effective immediately all permits including Road Occupancy Permits (ROPs) will now be picked up at the Mississauga Film Office, 201 City Centre Drive, Suite 202; M-F, 8:30am - 4:00pm. Payments must be made by cheque payable to the City of Mississauga.
