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.

TMU’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.

Educators can access everything that students do, as well as all the tools and resources that make CAMPUS unique.

Once their individual account is activated, educators have access to:

  • Thousands of films and other media
  • Tools to create and share your own chapters and playlists
  • Educational summaries that draw links to Pan-Canadian curricula
  • In-depth Educator’s guides
  • Search filters by subject area and age level
  • MARC records
  • Access via the web with no hardware or server space requirements
  • Easy integration into the classroom
