• Keeping Canada Safe

    Few things matter more to us than the safety of our families, our communities and our country. And now more than ever, whether we live in an urban centre under the pressure of increased security threats, or a remote community at the mercy of the elements, we are acutely aware that we cannot take our safety for granted. But most of us know little about the people and the incredible activity that goes on behind the scenes to keep everyone in our vast nation safe.

    Keeping Canada Safe is an exclusive snapshot into a dramatic, day-in-the-life of various Canadian emergency services including police, firefighters, airport security, grassroots volunteers, Canadian Forces, CSIS agents and more. Over 48 hours, 60 camera crews descended on Canada’s streets, airspace, parks and homes to capture the action-packed and inspiring stories of those working to protect the country, within and outside its borders.
