Filming, including photography, on City of Edmonton public property may require a permit. 

All drones/Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) flights on City of Edmonton property require a permit regardless if the use of the imagery is for commercial or personal use.

If you are filming, non-drone, for personal purposes, like a family video at a birthday party or pictures for a family album, then a permit is not required. This includes wedding photography. 

If, however, there is a commercial use for the photos or video, then you must acquire a permit in order to be able to film on City of Edmonton property. This includes music videos, monetized YouTube channels and commercial wedding photography.
