CION is thrilled to announce that Jodie Wiebe, Workforce Development Officer, and Bruno Rocca, Workforce Assessment & Planning Officer, have joined the roster!
Having both worked behind-the-scenes on film and television projects across Ontario, Jodie and Bruno bring to CION a fresh perspective on the planning and implementation of production crew programs in Northern Ontario.
Jodie Wiebe, Workforce Development Officer
Jodie's experience in the film and television production industry, where she played a key role on several regional projects, has provided her with the skills and interest to educate the next generation of film crew workforce on the possibilities in the North. With roots firmly planted in Northern Ontario, Jodie graduated from Cambrian College before she honed her administration and research skills by working with production companies and as part of television crews. Jodie is committed to supporting the growth of the film and television production industry in Northern Ontario by implementing programs that promote career development and bridge the gap between Northern residents and productions that visit the region.
Bruno Rocca, Workforce Assessment & Planning Officer
Bruno Rocca, an Art Director based in Northern Ontario, has provided design work for over 45 film and TV projects in both Northern Ontario and Toronto and recently production designed two films in 2021. He is an active member of DGC Ontario and holds a degree in Communications Studies from Laurentian University and graduated from Cambrian College’s Graphic Design program. Bruno also completed an MBA Essentials program at the Rotman School of Management in 2022. Currently, Bruno is collaborating with CION to conduct a study on workforce development in Northern Ontario to access educational programs, training, and events, with the aim of promoting and enhancing the growth of the workforce.
