Canadian Propaganda Posters of World War I that Designed to Get Public Support

The British declaration of war on Germany brought Canada into the Great War. The population of Canada was around eight million, and its war effort was remarkable. The Canadian government had the freedom to determine the country’s level of involvement in the War. More than 650,000 men and women served in the War, and over 66,000 lost the lives, and more than 172,000 were wounded. It was this immense sacrifice that led to Canada’s separate signature on the Peace Treaty.

The Canadian government hired an artist to design the propaganda posters to encourage the public to support and contribute to the war efforts. These posters were made of patriotic and attention-grabbing slogans, convincing people to support the government and military.
