OFFICE HOURS: Canada Day
Just a note to our members that we will be closed on the Monday July 2nd for the Canada day holiday.
We will reopen on Tuesday at 9am.
We hope all our members who also have the day off to celebrate the holiday get some well needed rest and time with family and friends.

On June 29, I will wrap over nine rewarding years with ICG 669. I am pleased to hand over the responsibilities of our professional development / technical training and safety rep position to Michelle Yardley. Michelle will be transitioning with me during the month of June, so feel free to contact either of us during that time.
As a result of significant concerns raised by workers in the film industry, IATSE 891 funded an independent report on how to determine worker exposure to fog and haze atmospheric effects using a direct reading instrument. This report is a significant step forward in improving health and safety for workers exposed to atmospheric effects on set.
