This product provides access to the majority of National Film Board of Canada produced videos, plus the option to acquire copies of the rest. The videos can be searched by keyword or browsed by title, director, channel (e.g. "Get Animated" or "Classics"), playlist (e.g. "Understanding Mental Health in Youth and Adults", general subjects (e.g. "History - Canada" or "Families"), or school subjects (requires login: see below).

In addition to the freely available resources, there about approximately 500 films labeled "CAMPUS" available through our subscription only. Laurier faculty, students and staff must be on campus, signed in with your library card (when off-campus), or signed into your free personal account (with Wilfrid Laurier University selected as their member institution) to access them. Having your own account allows you to create playlists and use chapter clips. These "Campus" films are available only to subscribers such as Laurier and include descriptions written by Canadian educators, and can be searched by grade and subject area. There are also Educator's Guides and other education resources.
