Curio.ca CBC Radio-Canada

The Curio.ca platform gives teachers and grade 8-12 students streaming access to the best in educational content from CBC and Radio-Canada.  You will find documentaries from television and radio, news reports, archival material, stock shots and kids shows.  Curriculum resources are available for all grades, including French and English language content, but most is geared to high school level.  There is also closed captioning for hearing impaired.  National Geographic films are also available, including awesome documentaries on many topics.  Educational content is correlated to the new British Columbia curriculum.

NOTE:  Please be aware that, although the CBC-appropriate age range is highlighted for each program, parents need to view the programs to see if they will consider them appropriate for their own students.  You may agree with our staff that a number of the programs should have an older rating.  (For example, Canada 150: Contemporary Indigenous Voices show this collection of programs to be for ages 9-12.  However, only 5 of the 52 titles included in the collection were actually listed as being for ages 9-12.  The remainder were for older audiences.)

Curio Catalogue September 2016  highlights many of the programs that are available on Curio.ca.
