Canada’s public producer and distributor, the National Film Board of Canada creates interactive works, social-issue documentaries, auteur animation and alternative dramas that provide the world with a unique Canadian perspective. The collection includes documentaries, animations, experimental films and fiction. NFB showcase films that take a stand on issues of global importance that matter to Canadians: stories about the environment, human rights, international conflict, the arts and more.

Ryerson’s subscription to NFB education gives you access to 500 films not available to the general public.

While you may watch all films online under our subscription, educators who wish to make use of Study Guides and Education Playlists will need to register for a CAMPUS profile. During registration, ignore all indications of cost as this has already been paid by the university.
