Distributing to other provinces

We are authorized to enter into agreements with other provinces and their designated classification authorities. Through administrative agreements, we provide some classification services for Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

Our film classifications, including ratings, advisories, and decision summaries are copyright protected and may only be used for a commercial purpose with our written permission. The unauthorized use of our copyright material may result in legal action under the Copyright Act. If we classify a film or trailer for distribution to a theatre in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, or BC, that classification is strictly limited to those provinces and must not be used for distribution to theatres outside these provinces.

If you want us to classify films and trailers that you are distributing to other provinces, please contact our classification team at classadmin@consumerprotectionbc.ca for information about how to make that request and the associated fees.

Read the Motion Picture Act, section 12.3.
