Need some advice for National Canadian Film Day viewing? Take our members’ collective picks by streaming the winners for the Rogers Best Canadian Film Award. Nearly all the winners are available to stream. In many cases, Canucks can enjoy them freely through CBC Gem and the NFB, or through the Toronto Public Library via Hoopla and Kanopy. Others are available on subscription services like Crave and Criterion Channel. Some films might require the price of admission, like our most recent winner Anne at 13,000 ft, which offers a chance to support your local cinema.
