Keeping Canada Alive

A powerful 24 hour snapshot of Canada's health care system on a typical day. Captured by sixty camera crews across the country.

Narrated by Emmy Award-winning Canadian actor Kiefer Sutherland, Keeping Canada Alive is an intimate six-part factual series and online experience that gives viewers a powerful 24-hour snapshot of Canada’s health care system as filmed on a typical day in 2015. Sixty camera crews filmed at over 40 health care facilities and private residences in 20 Canadian cities across ten provinces and one territory. In a unique blend of medical mystery and real-life drama, capturing powerful and poignant moments, the cameras rolled as people sought treatment – and medical professionals did everything they could to provide it. In addition, the companion online experience is one of the most ambitious projects to date for CBC and features 40 hours of extended breakout footage, original content, and more, as well as an online 24-hour stream of raw footage.
