The NFB Tour continues in Ontario on October 26


The above film, Toughing it out in Timmins, is a photo essay from the GDP project about the forestry industry in Timmins.


Tom Perlmutter, head of the NFB, will be kicking off the Ontario leg of the NFB Tour in Timmins on October 26, followed by stops in Windsor on October 27 and Waterloo on October 28. As mentioned in a previous post, the tour is part of our commitment to building and maintaining a strong connection with Canadians.

During these town hall style meetings, Tom is hoping to hear from you. He wants to hear about the stories that matter most to the people in these regions. At the same time, he’ll share information about the new directions the NFB is taking while ensuring that everyone knows about the myriad ways our collection is already accessible.

The Tour has already been to Moncton, Tatamagouche, Charlottetown and Fredericton. At each stop, Tom held lively discussions with people about the issues specific to their cities and communities. This is an opportunity to share your experience and help shape the way we connect with Canadians.

For more information on the tour, watch Tom’s personal video invitation. Then come join us at one of the locations listed below.

Hope to see you there!
