Art For Victory

At the outbreak of World War I, the main form of communication in Canada was the newspaper. Posters were used as an advertising tool, most widely in Europe. Without a conscription policy, it was necessary to find other ways to convince Canadians to join up. Recruitment posters quickly became prominent, promoting enlistment in the forces. During both World Wars, the large number of posters produced created a booming business for printing companies and graphic designers whose efforts helped serve their country through Canada’s most significant poster campaign.

The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum are pleased to present our latest acquisition, a unique group of recruitment and propaganda posters from World War I and II. Formerly owned by Christine Wildman of Whitby Ontario, the collection of over 70 posters, some of which are over 100 years old, are brightly coloured illustrations that entice and encourage the everyday man or woman to join the forces.

Wednesday to Sunday - 9 am to 5 pm. Exhibit is FREE with admission. Regular admission rates are Adult (18 – 64) $16, Senior (65+) $14, Student (13 – 17) $14, Youth (6 – 12) $11. Free admission for museum members and children 5 & under.
