Bookings, Pick-up & Drop-off
Our self-serve equipment booking system has been suspending because we are transitioning to a new booking system.
Bookings for mobile equipment may be confirmed by emailing email@example.com. Send a list a equipment you want to book based on what is listed on Mobile Equipment
page. All booking are on a first-come-first-served basis.
In light of new provincial regulations related to re-opening businesses in the face of Covid-19, CSV will require proof-of-vaccination or a valid exemption from vaccine on official medical officer's letterhead for any activity inside the facility that requires a sustained* amount of time, including:
• testing gear on-site;
• in-house editing, or sound recording;
• attending in-person workshops, panels, or tech sessions
• attending art-related events, including talks, openings, art-viewing, etc.
The facility will continue to adhere to mask-wearing protocols and social distancing, which will limit the number of people inside the facility to no more than 6 at a time, including staff members. We will continue to release and receive rental gear on an appointment-only basis.
Proof-of-vaccination means allowing us to see digital or paper copies of your Ministry of Health vaccination receipts that show your second Covid-19 vaccination occurred at least two weeks prior, together with valid photo-ID. (The MoH receipts will be replaced starting October 22 by MoH-issued QR codes.)
We will update these protocols as the provincial and municipal health authorities advise. Our goal is to provide a safe work environment for our employees and members, and to adhere to Covid-19 requirements set by the City of Toronto and the province.
*sustained means anything more than transacting equipment pick-up or return, and not including testing, reviewing gear for problems, etc.
