Film Classification

On May 1, 1994, the provinces of Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia agreed to establish a common film classification agency for the Maritime region to be know as the Maritime Film Classification Board.

Films and videos are classified by the Maritime Film Classification Board to help you decide if a particular movie is suitable for you or your family. A film's content may mean that only certain age groups may see it in a theatre or rent the video from a retail outlet. In some cases it may be left to a parent or other adult to decide if a film is suitable for a younger viewer. Theatres and retail video outlets are obliged by law to enforce the age limitations.
