Experience the incredible determination, resilience and sacrifice of Canadian women during the First and Second World Wars.

War brought enormous changes to Canadian women’s lives. They adapted to the conditions of total war in practical terms — working, volunteering and serving in uniform. In the wake of war’s inevitable tragedies, they also faced other challenges. The contributions made by women to the Canadian war efforts were crucial, and their experiences forged a new understanding of women’s capabilities both within themselves and within society.

Through photographs, artwork, diaries and mementoes, including a Memorial Cross presented to the mother of a fallen soldier, this souvenir catalog reveals deeply personal stories of life in service and on the home front.
