Curio.ca launches Canada 150 collection of streaming media

Looking back on Canada's first 150 years as a country provides an opportunity to look more deeply at who we are as Canadians and what's important to all of us. Our diverse stories are a springboard to a vital discussion on how we plan to face our challenges together.   Alloway Library's Curio.ca database connects you to a vast collection of Canadian streaming media from CBC and Radio Canada.
Below you'll find some wide-ranging collections to get things rolling, including media and supporting teaching resources.  Keep your eyes and ears on Curio.ca for much more Canada 150 as the year unfolds!
