Remembrance Day at the Museum
Drop into the Museum after the Remembrance Day Ceremony for some wartime economic history and activities.
Financing the First World War in Canada
During the First World War, it wasn’t just the population that got mobilized, so did the economy. Learn how we financed Canada’s war efforts while keeping the economy under control at home. Chief Curator Paul Berry gives a presentation on the economics of war: English at 13:00, French at 15:00, 30 minutes.
Discover all the artifacts in the Museum that are related to war and remembrance with our Money During Times of War guide book. Noon until 17:00.
Postcards for Peace
Visitors can thank a vet on postcards provided by Veterans Affairs Canada. Later, they will be sent to veteran’s care homes.
At the craft tables, kids can colour in coins of remembrance. Noon until 17:00.
