FamilySearch has expanded the areas where online ordering of microfilms is available and this now includes Canada. To order, go to Sign in or create an account. From there, click on "Catalog"

From there, enter the area where your ancestors were from and hit "search"
You can then browse through each entry that comes up. If the information is available on microfilm:

2. Select your loan type, enter the microfilm number, and click Search.

3. You can then purchase the film online (about $5 USD) just as you would purchase online from any other vendor. The film will then be made ready for shipment to your local FHL.

You have 24 hours to cancel your order before it ships. Once it ships, you will receive an e-mail notification that the order has been sent. Another e-mail will be sent once the film has arrived at your local FHL.
You will receive another e-mail one week before your film is due to be shipped back. At that point, you can go back online and renew the film for another 60 days.
