Keeping Canada Alive is a six-part CBC television miniseries that gives an up-close perspective into the Canadian healthcare system. With sixty cameras set-up over a 24 hour period across the country, the show featured ten individual stories with the goal of sparking conversation around the demands and challenges in the Canadian healthcare system.

CBC and Force Four asked Massive to help generate online conversation around the demands and challenges facing the Canadians who rely on the health care system and those who serve them.
