Making Steel

Top of page

Canada's industrial development at the beginning of this century was centred on steel. Steel was responsible not only for communication links across the country, but also for immigration and urban development. Making Steel explores the Cape Breton experience at the Sydney steel plant, illustrating aspects of steelmaking which are common to the industry all across North America. The video consists of three sections: Technology, History, and Culture of Work.
