today that Great Pacific Media's HIGH
ARCTIC HAULERS, a CBC original factual series, premieres in 2019.
HIGH ARCTIC HAULERS offers a look at Canada’s resilient, vibrant northern communities and the determined men and women who help provide their lifeline to the outside world.

HIGH ARCTIC HAULERS features culturally rich and diverse communities – people who choose to live in some of the harshest conditions in the world.

A CBC original series, HIGH ARCTIC HAULERS is produced by Great Pacific Media, a Thunderbird Company.
