About Us

NABET 700-M UNIFOR is a union of film, television and new media technicians that has serviced the greater Toronto area for over 45 years.  

NABET 700-M UNIFOR was formed in 1970 to provide video tape technicians, but later expanded to provide television and film technicians to Toronto's growing production industry. In 1994 Nabet 700 merged with the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada (CEP), which was the third largest trade union in North America at the time with over 180,000 members.

In 2013 The CEP and the CAW came together to form UNIFOR.  UNIFOR is Canada's largest private sector union, with more than 300,000 members in all sectors across the country.  NABET 700-M UNIFOR currently has over 3,000 qualified technicians in fifteen departments of the film and television industry. Our members crew a show on a non-seniority basis that allows productions to hire the technicians they know are appropriate for the upcoming production. This ensures that the best people are always working on the right production, which is a benefit both to producers and NABET 700-M UNIFOR members alike.

NABET 700-M UNIFOR represents the following departments:  

Continuity (Script Supervisor)

Paint  Props
