Finding Closed Captioned Videos

Find closed captioned videos by using the Library's catalogue or searching individual collections.

Using the Omni search box on the Library website, type in closed caption* along with your topic (the * retrieves all possible endings of the word 'caption'). Further refine your search results by using the 'Resource Type' filter along the left side to limit to video, audio vidual, etc.

       e.g. closed caption* AND nutrition

For more assistance with searching, please contact your subject specialist librarian - see the Contact page or

Using existing closed captioned media is encouraged. The cost of making a request to a vendor to close caption, or to modify a non-closed captioned DVD from a television series (e.g. CBC) can be very costly (often over $500) and time consuming (8-12 weeks). For more information, please contact Catherine Davidson, Chief Librarian via email or 905-721-2000 x2348.
