Apply for Permittee Status

So you want to join NABET 700-M UNIFOR! Your first step is to become a Permittee - that is, someone who is working towards becoming a member by providing invaluable support and back-up to the membership during our busiest periods.

There are several steps that you MUST complete before handing in this application:

1. Attend NABETiquette. This is a half day set etiquette and protocol workshop, generally offered once every 6 weeks. The upcoming course date is listed on the home page of the NABET 700-M UNIFOR website. The cost for the course is $100 and includes the Permittee Application fee. You can register by calling the office with a credit card number or by visiting the office where we accept cash (must be exact change), credit, debit or cheque. As there are only 50 spots available for the workshop, you MUST register and pay in advance to reserve your spot. Drop-ins will only be accepted in replacement of no-shows.

At the end of the course, you will receive two (2) copies of the NABETiquette certificate. You must include one (1) copy of your certificate in your permittee application package. Applications submitted without the certificate will not be accepted.

As of July 9, 2017, NABETiquette certificates are only valid for two (2) years from the date the course was completed. Applicants must submit their permittee application within this timeframe, otherwise the certificate will expire and they must re-do the NABETiquette course.

This policy is not applicable to those who have attended a NABETiquette course prior to July 9, 2017.

2. You must have a minimum of 40 Days relevant working experience in film or television in the department you plan on applying for.

3. You must attach one (1) copy of your resume in addition to filling out the relevant past employment page in this application form.

4. Every Applicant must complete BOTH the Worker and Supervisor Health & Safety Modules and attach a copy of both certificates (Worker & Supervisor) to your application. The Health and Safety Awareness Training Modules for workers and supervisors are available on the Ministry of Labour website and can be found at the links provided below:



At the end of the module, you will be provided with a digital certificate of completion that you can keep for your records and use to submit with your application.

5. Any additional materials or requirements needed for your specific department (please refer to the “Department Qualifications” page in the application package and the "Department Qualifications" page on our website) as well as a copy of any applicable licences (Transport/Hair).

Incomplete application packages will not be accepted by the office i.e. missing Health and Safety Certificates, NABETiquette certificate, departmental requirements, etc.

Once your complete application package has been received, it will await for Departmental and/or Departmental Vice-President approval. You will be notified via email once your application has been approved. Please note that if you would like to apply to more than one department, you must submit a complete application for each department.
