Here’s a list of movies and shows coming to Netflix Canada in May, 2021.
We’re facing another month of isolation as the current Public Health Orders in Manitoba restrict any indoor public or private gatherings. Also, no visitors are allowed on private property. There are some exceptions for those who live alone and for childcare, healthcare, property maintenance and emergencies. With these orders in effect, Netflix will be you’re best friend for the entire month of May.
