BC ELN has received renewal pricing for, the streaming audio and video product from CBC and Radio-Canada. Institutions can also opt to add the following streaming news products at an additional cost: L'Actualité en revue (French), News in Review (English), National Geographic (English/French), and the BBC Channel (English/French). Each of the five products needs its own subscription. A library must subscribe to the base in order to add another component. More details are found below.

There has been no pricing change from 2019/2020. Pricing will vary based on updated FTE.

These products are made available to BC ELN partner libraries through a national site license, negotiated on behalf of Consortia Canada by Bureau de Coopération Interuniversitaire (BCI)


NEW IN 2020-2021 :

The National Geographic offer has changed. In past years, libraries that wished to have access to both the English and French-language content from National Geographic needed two separate subscriptions, so 2 X $0.15 per FTE. Both are now bundled into a single package for the cost of a single subscription, so 1 X $0.15 per FTE.


Description: gives teachers and students streaming access to the best in educational video and audio from CBC and Radio-Canada. You'll find documentaries from television and radio, news reports and more — all available with a single subscription!

Our collection features thousands of programs and hundreds of teacher resource guides carefully curated to support provincial K-12 curricula and post-secondary courses across the country. gives teachers and students 24/7 access to a wealth of primary-source content in English and French. It’s a great tool to help students develop critical-thinking skills. Every week, we add new content selected for its educational relevance, always commercial-free, including the latest from CBC’s award-winning documentary, news, drama, and children's programming (e.g. The Nature of Things, The Fifth Estate and The National).
