The Military Museums will be the first stop for Business of War: Canadian Businesses and the First World War, a new travelling exhibit from the Canadian Centre for the Great War. Business of War will be on display in The Military Museums from February 3rd to March 24th, 2017, in the QEII Atrium.
When Canada answered the call to fight in the Great War, the whole nation had to pitch in. Often overlooked, however, is the role Canadian industry had in the First World War, from declaration of war in 1914 to Armistice in 1918 and after. The Business of War explores how businesses in Canada took part in the war effort through recruitment, supply, patriotic campaigns, commemoration and more.
The Business of War is a temporary exhibit which will travel across Canada from April 2017 to April 2018, after its debut here at The Military Museums. The exhibit will serve as a segue to The Military Museums’ anticipated War Stories 1917 project which highlights the centennials of Vimy Ridge, Hill 70, and Passchendaele.
The Military Museums annual lecture series is held Thursday evenings at The Military Museum from September until May.
The Founders' Gallery hosts local, national and international art and heritage collections to further Canadians understanding of our military experience.
Showcase for selected exhibits at The Military Museums.
Remembrance Day commemorations every November 11th.
