a few good choices (spotlight...strange brew...jesus of montreal...), but my ultimate pick has to be...

'the imaginarium of doctor parnassus'....(terry gilliam is a genius...and there ain't too many of them around these days...)

Incendies because besides being a great film is much more Canadian than the many co-productions on the list

Great choice, I like the logic.

Co-productions are part of the business, there are not many major one country motion picture productions  outside the major centers. But, I am a bit surprised it didn't have more, given it use as a popular, less expensive filming location. Still, it is in good company as it ranks highly. Canada has the eighth most of the 915 that have held that distinction of being listed in IMDb Top 250.

2. UK

4 Germany
5 Japan
6 Italy
7 India
8 Canada

You have a superfluous 'the' in the intro.

You may have missed The Red Violin (1998), which was also once on the Top 250.
