Canadian Wartime Propaganda

Attack on All Fronts, CWM 19730004-030

Canadian Posters

Like all combatant nations, Canada used specifically targeted media and modern visual design tools for propaganda purposes during the First and Second World Wars. In addition to the posters presented here, radio, commercial advertising, and other print media all became important vehicles for propaganda messaging.

This virtual exhibition overviews briefly contemporary changes in modern poster design and film production and their effects on Canadian propaganda efforts in the two world wars.
