What is Canada In A Day?

Canada In A Day is a CTV television event special made entirely from videos made by Canadians over the course of one day.

On September 10th, 2016 Canadians grabbed their cameras and filmed their lives. Over 16,000 videos – from special occasions to simple moments – were collected from people from coast to coast to coast. People like you.

Premiering Sunday, June 25th, as Canada gets set to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation, Canada In A Day is a unique snapshot of one 24-hour period. From these individual stories comes a film that shows us who we are as a country at this moment in time. A time capsule for Canada.

We asked:

  • What do you love?
  • What do you fear?
  • What do you hope for?
  • What does Canada mean to you?

A word from our director

“Hi Canada! Can you believe it? We’ve actually finished editing all your videos into a completed film for CTV. Thank you so much for sharing your lives with us. From coast to coast, north to south, you guys sent in amazing footage from your everyday lives and I have to say I was brought to tears many times watching the footage of beautiful, intimate, poignant moments that you sent in. I can’t wait for you to see it, we made Canada In A Day together.”
