Ratings

The Victoria Avenue, Chippawa & Stamford Centre libraries are pleased to offer feature-length movies for everyone to enjoy. If you're ever in doubt about whether or not to view a particular movie, check out the Ontario Film Review Board website. The Ontario Film Review Board is a classification tool that your library uses to determine the rating for each movie shown. This is a community board made up of various people and receives its mandate through the Film Classification Act, 2005 and operates as an arms-length agency reporting to the Minister of Consumer Services.

Subject to certain exceptions, if a film (e.g. movie, video, DVD, VCD or video game) is to be distributed or screened in Ontario, it must first be classified by this Board.
