Who We Are
For over 30 years, National Captioning Canada (NCC) has been a leader in the Canadian accessibility industry, providing media accessibility services to broadcast networks, government organizations, educational institutions, and corporations.
In February 2022, 3Play Media acquired NCC, the largest live captioning provider based in Canada, providing exciting geographic expansion for 3Play Media into the Canadian market and cementing 3Play Media as the premier media accessibility provider in North America.
While NCC is now known as 3Play Media Canada, its historic leadership in media accessibility remains the same. 3Play Media Canada proudly maintains Canadian operations and continues to support a Canadian labor workforce, employing the largest roster of the most skilled live captioners in the country.

INCLUSION – OPPORTUNITY – ACCESS
We believe that accessibility matters and that the impact of accessibility is universal.
We aim to help create a more accessible web by providing services and resources that support media accessibility across websites, apps, and other digital interfaces.
Media accessibility is about creating content that is inclusive of all people, with and without disabilities, and providing an equal experience without barriers.
