opposite side of the room and take a photograph of the area you were just standing in. Show entrances in your photos if possible.

Delivering quality chiropractic care to the Burnaby community since 2007. Our approach is simple. We believe that health is among our most valuable possessions. And while we generally meet people after they’ve lost their health, our commitment is two-fold: We encourage our practice members to achieve the highest levels of health they can. Through educational opportunities (like this website), we hope to communicate the value of ongoing chiropractic care. Our desire is to see our practice members abandon the prevailing sickness care model of health (waiting for symptoms and then taking action), in favor of the emerging wellness model.

Rum Runner Imports In the 1920â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and early 1930â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rum Runners smuggled liquor to regions where governments had banned its consumption. The liquor trade had gone underground and it was all back alley deals and secret parlors. It was risky and lucrative; and even attracted organized crime with the likes of Alphonse G. Capone. Rum Runner Imports was started in 2008. The goal: introduce fine and unique spirits to the BC and Alberta markets. Our website was created to allow our customers to learn about our products and stay informed via our pressroom and gallery.

Desert terrain, hoodoos, box canyons, grasslands, tundra, snow-capped mountains, rugged evergreen valleys, snow and sage, historical buildings and small towns – the ThompsonNicola Regional District has it all.

Though it has been a stand-in for everything mountain from Alaska to California to Nepal, perhaps Whistler Resort’s greatest role is, well, just being itself.

spring 2012 www.westernfilmmaker.com

Of course, that means being a top-ranked, four-season mountain resort, with a charming pedestrian village, handy lift access to glacier-capped mountain peaks, forested hillsides and sweeping panoramas, bubbling brooks and burbling hot tubs and a range of amenities from five star hotels to youth hostels, luxurious log chalets to funky A-frame ski cabins. Summer or winter, skiing or golfing, biking or kayaking, shopping or dining, Whistler is the destination for more than two million visitors a year. But Whistler is always ready to accommodate film crews and is a favorite destination for international television productions from the BBC, Japan, Australia, Switzerland, Sweden and, of course, the United States. Whistler has also been the location of choice for beer, automotive, coffee, and dog food commercials, as well as clothing catalogues, feature films, television series, reality television shows, wildlife documentaries, fashion shoots and multi media productions. Aside from the top of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, Whistler’s unique and easily accessible locations include House Rock in the Whistler Interpretive Forest, luxurious log homes, the floatplane base on Green Lake, Rainbow Park and and Lost Lake Park. Exciting new venues will soon be added as Whistler is a host community for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, including a bobsled/luge track on the side of Blackcomb Mountain, an Olympic athlete’s village at the entrance to the Interpretive Forest and a Nordic centre in the Callaghan Valley, just five minutes south of Whistler. Construction on these venues begins in 2005. Local, experienced professionals serve production needs, including location scouting and securing, clothing and costuming, catering, transportation and safety coordination. The Kibwe Foundation Recording Studio in the new Maurice Young Millennium Place makes Whistler an ideal location for music videos as well. The Resort Municipality of Whistler (toll free North American, 1-866-932-5535) issues film permits for productions occurring on all municipal property, including the village, while Whistler-Blackcomb Public Relations department (604-9323141) handles requests for access to Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. Tourism Whistler, the marketing arm of the resort, will facilitate travel and tourism promotional productions and its Central Reservations can help search out the best accommodation (604-932-3928). No onerous paperwork or hoops to jump through here. Once a location is chosen and the details confirmed, the permit process takes a matter of minutes.

If that wasn’t enough, Alberta is the only province in Canada that doesn’t have a provincial sales tax. This means you have more money to put on screen. Provincial Funding Many public and private funds are available in Alberta to film producers. Federal Funding Many public and private funds are available in Canada to film producers. The Guide published annually by the Canadian Film and Television Producers Association is an excellent source of information. The AFDP can be used in conjunction with the CFTPA incentives. Working in Alberta Alberta has a long and rich production history. A filmmaking destination since the early 1900’s, Alberta has starred as many locations worldwide, and hosted many of the best studios and networks.

Labour Market Opinion Prior to arrival in Canada where work permits are required for entry, productions are required to apply for a Labour Market Opinion (LMO) from Human Resources and Social Development Canada. A LMO is designed to take into account career development and employment opportunities for Canadians. A LMO must be obtained before a work permit is issued. A copy of the application must be faxed to the appropriate guild and union and the Alberta Film Commission F:403.297.6168. Work Permits Non Canadian Residents working in Alberta are required to have work permits. Work permits may be obtained at any point of entry at a cost of $150 per person. Work permits are not required for film and television producers.

Alberta will contribute between 20% - 29 % of ALL eligible expenses. This is equivalent to a 36% - 53% labour based tax credit. Alberta’s level of contribution increases with Albertan ownership and the employment of Albertan key creative personnel.

Through your entire production, you will feel at home thanks to quality accommodations, fine restaurants, and thriving cultural communities.

western filmmaker

Alberta’s unique production incentive offers a grant against ALL eligible production expenses incurred in Alberta.
