Saving Places (2010)


Saving Places is about saving a country’s heritage – one building at a time. Each episode documents the hands-on restoration of a desperately endangered but historically meaningful building – a building that tells a story about people and events in Canada’s past.

The restorers aim for as much historical authenticity as possible, using the materials, designs and craftsmanship of a bygone era. These are classic artisans, capturing the spirit, values and beauty of those who came before them – through the buildings they’ve left behind.
