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 Wednesday in May 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, which can be found at cbc.ca/keepingcanadaalive, is one of the most ambitious to date for CBC and features almost 40 hours of extended breakout footage, original content, and more, as well as an online 24-hour stream of raw footage.
