MediaSmarts has had a very special relationship with the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) going back to 1996 when MediaSmarts (formerly Media Awareness Network) was first created. We started life under the auspices of the NFB as they provided critical financial support and sheltered us in their Ottawa offices. As a newly formed not-for-profit, we received financial assistance for start-up costs and the development of our communications capacity. This support of our organization continues today through the NFB’s annual Associate Sponsorship.
The first Chair of our Board of Directors was Sandra MacDonald, Government Film Commissioner and Chairperson and the NFB continues its Board involvement today through the participation of the current Government Film Commissioner and NFB Chair Tom Perlmutter.
We greatly value our long-standing relationship with the NFB, and we look forward to continuing to work with them to advance our vision and mission.
Partnerships and programs we have worked with the NFB on include:
