Toronto – Cinespace Studios announces a new partnership with NABET 700-M UNIFOR to expand its CineCares Workforce Training Program in Toronto.  Cameron Pictures and Lark Productions are producing the upcoming “Law & Order Toronto: Criminal Intent,” the first Canadian production to participate in the program with NABET 700-M UNIFOR, currently filming at Cinespace Toronto and set to air on Citytv and Citytv+ in Spring 2024.  Selected trainees are offered hands-on experience on set in the sound, script, and lighting departments.

Launched in the spring of 2023, the CineCares Workforce Training program offers participants on-set experience to pursue union membership.  BIPOC TV & FILM, Indigenous Screen Office, and POV are recruitment partners selecting candidates to be trained with IATSE Local 873 and NABET 700-M UNIFOR for paid placements in trainee roles for Set Decoration, Props, Grip, Lighting, Sound and General Labour. The program is committed to creating strong wrap-around support, participant network development, mentorships, and post-program sessions.

“Cinespace hosts productions with some of the best Toronto crew, who excel at their craft and make extraordinary mentors,” said Magali Simard, Director of Industry & Community Relations.  “Our partnership with NABET, Cameron Pictures, and Lark Productions allows us to further our commitment to developing local talent and creating a workforce development pipeline.”

“NABET 700-M UNIFOR appreciates the opportunity to partner with Cinespace Studios, through the CineCares workforce training program, as well as our long-standing production partners at Cameron Pictures and now Lark Productions to work together to add to the depth and diversity of our skilled workforce through paid, on-the-job training opportunities on Law and Order Toronto: Criminal Intent,” said Jayson Mosek, Business Agent at NABET 700-M UNIFOR.

“We’re proud to be the first Canadian production to bring CineCares trainees onto our sets and to be able to provide this opportunity for the next generation of crew talent,” said Amy Cameron, co-founder and executive producer at Cameron Pictures.
