I don't think the NFB normally rents prints any more. Someone I know who wanted to get prints of Arthur Lipsett's films for a special screening ran into a brickwall at the NFB. Luckily, she was able to get them from a university film library. You don't mention the films you are looking for, but you might start thinking about other sources for them. MoMA's film library has quite a few NFB films, for example.

Subject: Trying to reach the right person at the NFB of Canada
I'd like to get a couple of films from the National Film Board of Canada to
screen at Filmforum. I've called the general number, spoke with someone who
asked for an email to pass it along, and I haven't heard anything in reply.
I can't find a number on their elaborate website. Can anyone tell me who the
correct contact person is there to rent prints for screenings?
And, while we're at it, does anyone have an opinion on "Of Sport and Men",
text by Barthes, film by Aquin? How about other films by Aquin?
"Le sport et les hommes"
Le sport et les hommes / Of Sport and Men, documentaire de 58 minutes, 1961.
Réalisation : Hubert Aquin. Texte : Roland Barthes. Production : Office
national du film du Canada.
