Canadians across the country have been coming out in droves to support the health care workers who are on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic every day.

Whether it’s big companies retooling to provide medical supplies and personal protective equipment to kids leaving signs in their front windows thanking health care workers, there have been many ways Canadians are showing their gratitude.

This Saturday, Citytv wants to take it one step further.

Citytv will be airing a one-hour special, #COVIDheroes dedicated to honouring Canada’s front-line workers.

You can watch it live on Citytv at 7 p.m. EST and PT or stream it on our website.

Citytv also wants to give you the chance to share your message of appreciation and thank those on the front lines. You can submit a video message on our website and make sure you provide your name and location.

The one-hour special, hosted by CityNews’ Lindsay Dunn and Breakfast Television’s Devo Brown, will feature interviews with Ryan Reynolds and Hayley Wickenheiser who will chat about their “Conquer COVID” project aimed at getting personal protective equipment to the front lines, along with some other special guests.

We will also hear stories of nurses and doctors from across the country about what it is like to fight the coronavirus pandemic on the front lines, along with those supporting them.

The special will be followed by the #OneWorld: Together at Home worldwide broadcast.
