Serving the Entertainment Industry for almost 100 years
IATSE Local 634 consists of artists, technicians, and craftspeople who work primarily in film, television and stage production in Northern Ontario. We work on all types of productions and all budget levels, including some of the biggest productions the North has ever seen. We are recognized for our professionalism. From our earliest days, we have actively participated in the development and growth of the film and television production industry in Northern Ontario. Along with marketing the North as a production destination, our approach is to supply the best talent possible and act reasonably to ensure a stable labour relations climate in our industry. We have an ongoing training program with a strong emphasis on safety. We also have a health plan and life insurance, a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP), and access to other benefits. Along with film and television production, we work in allied crafts and trade shows / events / staging. Our Local is part of IATSE International, an alliance of all IATSE locals in North America. We are a member of the Ontario Federation of Labour and the Canadian Labour Congress.
