  • In general, film, television and commercial production companies are required to ensure workplaces are safe; that their cast, crew and communities they operate in are protected; and that physical distancing is maintained as much as possible.
  • All companies operating in Ontario are required to have a COVID-19 plan in place for their production and must appoint a joint health and safety committee and/or a health and safety representative.
