Victory Bonds

There were many ads for Victory Bonds in newspapers, as they were an easy way for people to help support the Canadian war effort. Victory Bonds were loans made to the government by Canadian citizens to raise funds to pay for the war. There were 5 different Victory Bond campaigns during the war and 1918 was the most successful year with over $600,000 raised in three weeks.​​

In the newspaper below, the small article in the centre at the top reads: "The following is a list of the canvassing districts in the County, the population in each, the 1917 Victory Loan result and the objective that has been set for each district for the 1918 campaign":​
