Reel Thanksgiving Challenge

The Reel Thanksgiving Challenge sees BC film and television productions compete in a spirit of friendly competition to raise the most money for the Greater Vancouver Foodbank for people in need. The competition takes place each fall. In 2017, the Challenge raised $205,830.98 in food and cash. Along with other motion picture unions and guilds, IATSE 891 supports this fun and worthwhile annual event.

United Way

The United Way British Columbia has had a long and proud history of working with the Canadian Labour Congress and its affiliated labour unions, of which IATSE 891 is one.

This partnership between Labour and the United Way has helped raise awareness and funds to provide research into the root causes of social problems, to invest in non-profit organizations so that they can deliver quality programming that makes a difference in the lives of children and seniors, and to raise our voices to influence public attitudes, systems and policies.

Working people are the backbone of United Way campaigns, and our Executive Board is proud to encourage the membership of IATSE 891 to support the United Way, through contributions of time, and by making a financial donation.
