The original James Tallimar Project was a group of friends who had created a few videos in Ottawa in the 1980's. From those early stages, the project would grow in size to include people from several countries.

The idea for TimeKeepers Canada began in 1983, when a videographer in Canada met a World War II Veteran from England. The project would involve the recording on video  of Canadian senior citizens and veterans. An idea to build an invaluable video library of classic interviews for the future.

In the 1990's, almost 500 schools across Canada participated in recording interviews with family members and veterans. In the months to come, we will take you on a journey over several years. You will see how our group collected hundreds of classic interviews about aviation, medicine, war, the future of the environment and the history of Canadian big events.

Original eye-witness accounts of history. These tapes will be used to teach Canadian young people in the future what it means to be a Canadian. Today, the future is here and we are editing the tapes. The original concept was called The Canadian Cultural Video Library. Over the years, it has evolved and has now become TimeKeepers Canada, a James Tallimar Project.

Working with close friends and travelling the country, we felt many Canadians were taking Canada for granted. There are quite a few people who do not realize what we have here. We wondered how could we fix this. We believed these interviews about Canadian events would build a sense of confidence amongst our people. 

A legacy of invaluable Canadian memories.
