eOne Films

It's back to work or school for everyone, and that is a sad, sad thing. At least Netflix Canada has seriously upped their selection for the fall -- in a way, it can help make that transition a little easier.

From Oscar-winning movies like "12 Years A Slave" to homegrown Canadian comedy like "Trailer Park Boys," there's something for the highbrow and lowbrow alike.

HuffPost Canada and Netflix Canada have teamed up to provide you with our best suggestions for new arrivals, long-time favourites and titles coming soon. Stop shuffling aimlessly through Netflix's library, and just take our word for it.

We will update with new suggestions biweekly -- feel free to check back whenever you're at a loss. Of course, Netflix Canada has way more titles than we have listed here.
