This year marks Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation. Join us for an exploration of what it means to call Canada “home” with this handpicked selection of NFB works.
It can be a province. A territory. A city. A community. It can be a piece of land. Or a piece of the past. It can be remembered. It can be found. This year marks Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation. Discover our specially curated online programming that explores what it means to call Canada home.
In a country as vast as Canada, what we call home differs depending on the region we live in, the cultural background we come from, the family traditions we carry forward, and the personal histories we carry inside. In this special NFB series, we’ve selected works from our collection that explore the many different “homes” that we’ve inherited, adopted, embraced and reinvented all across the country.
We may put different dishes on our tables, read stories to our children in different languages, and be lulled to sleep by different soundscapes, but what these works bring home is that what makes us different is what makes us who we are.
A selection of NFB works that showcase Canada’s rich environment, wildlife and cultural heritage.
A selection of NFB works that celebrate the creativity and curiosity of Canadians, from intrepid expeditions to great inventions.
From human rights battles to Indigenous claims, these NFB works illustrate the issues that mobilize Canadians, past and present.
Coming this September
In this series of interactive photo essays, Canadians from all walks of life share personal reflections on our common journey—the legacies that we’ve inherited and the ones that we aspire to leave for future generations. Coming June 2017.
