The series from Alliance Films in association with W Network, is based on the format devised by Studio Lambert, part of the ALL3MEDIA group of companies. Each hour-long episode of Undercover Boss Canada features an executive who is transformed into a frontline worker with a covert disguise and a convincing back story.

Working alongside their employees, each “boss” embarks on an often emotional journey as they struggle to learn new skills not required at the CEO level and discover the effects their decisions have on others, the perception of the company, and who the unsung heroes of their workforce are.

Most importantly, they learn how to apply what they have gained from the experience – both for their company and for themselves.
