Bank of Canada:

Bank of Japan: they do not seem to have a YouTube channel and do not provide any link to video streaming on their website. When I need to watch the market during their conferences, I run a search and usually there is someone like Reuters streaming it. If you know of any permanent link they stream under, please let me know via email. Of course, the conference is in Japanese, so I don’t understand a word, but since it is tentative I have it playing muted on my screen so I know when they start and when they finish 🙂 .
