8.1. Victory Bond Campaign, Regina, Saskatchewan, 1918

Victory Bonds Targeted to Ethnic Groups

"During the First World War, the imagery of Canada's posters was, both thematically and graphically, similar to that of British war posters. This visual affinity was partly due to the imperial and constitutional ties between Canada and Britain. In addition, Canada targeted posters at specific ethnic groups. There were specially designed posters for French Canadians, Irish-Canadians and Canadians of Scottish descent. The bulk of the posters encouraged men to enlist and the public to buy Victory Bonds. "
