National Captioning Canada was founded in 1988 by Rena Nathanail, the President

Rena graduated from the court reporting program at Edmonton’s Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in 1984. After moving to Toronto in 1986, she began working as a real-time closed captionist for a non-profit agency set up to promote closed captioning in Canada. She branched out on her own when she recognized an urgent need to specialize in live captioning and provide captioning services to broadcasters and the hearing impaired community in a new and fledgling industry.

Rena started off providing captioning herself and working the hours her broadcast clients required. Nathanail Captioning Enterprises, as it was then known, grew and Rena hired and trained new captioners, who became part of the “NatCap” family. Most of these captioners still work for National Captioning Canada today.

As a result of all her accomplishments, Rena Nathanail was named one of Calgary's Woman of Vision in 2008. Her dedication to the company, alongside the dedication of her captioners and her management and administrative team allows National Captioning Canada to remain at the top of Canada's real-time captioning industry.
