Wartime Canada

Wartime CanadaWartime Canada was envisioned as a way to make the visual heritage of the nation at war freely available in digital form. Our emphasis is on the kind of material that is usually regarded as disposable - the very material that was omnipresent in the lives of Canadians in wartime. The documents are sorted by category but in a manner to encourage browsing - rather than imposing a narrative, we are letting the artifacts speak for themselves and encouraging users to explore this history in any order they wish. New items are constantly being added, so visit us frequently. Wartime Canada is intended to provide material that is freely downloadable for reproduction and research, and we have made every reasonable effort to ensure that all documents are in the public domain. Please direct any questions on this matter to the project co-directors. The website is a collaborative effort involving universities, institutions, and interested individuals from across Canada, with funding from The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council’s Public Outreach program
