Filming day was Saturday, September 10th, 2016

Thousands of videos were shot over the 24 hours of September 10th. No matter where you were in the country, or in the world, you grabbed your camera and filmed yourselves, your friends and family, your life.

Award-winning director Trish Dolman, a vast team of loggers, along with award-winning editor Nicholas Hector, reviewed each video and curated the film, scored by a special selection of music from celebrated Canadian artists and composer Michael Brook.

The film, which premiered on CTV on June 25th, 2017, celebrates our country as it turned 150 years old.

Here’s what people told us

Thousands filmed parts of their day on September 10, 2016. Here’s what some of them said about their experience.

A word from our director

Canada In A Day was a life changing opportunity as a filmmaker. It was an honour to put together the stories of Canadians talking – in a very real way – about who we are, where we are as a nation, and where we want to go. Thank you to the thousands of you who shared your stories. This film is a collection of the ordinary and extraordinary moments in the lives of Canadians, and will be a valuable time capsule for generations to come.”
