Institutions and Businesses

The NFB's educational resources are frequently used outside of the traditional classroom by private companies, public agencies and non-profit groups. NFB films can be effective tools in workplace training, community outreach and public-awareness campaigns—and our catalogue covers a wide range of current issues.

Among the private businesses and public agencies that make regular use of our material are the following:

  • Museums and art institutions
  • Health and social service organizations
  • Financial institutions and other private companies
  • Policing agencies and correctional facilities
  • Community-based non-profits


Under the Copyright Modernization Act, which come into force in November 2012, institutions operating within Canada are required to purchase public performance rights when screening NFB films.
