In The Beginning

"Behind the Lines: Canada's Home Front During the First and Second World Wars" provides a glimpse into the personal sacrifice and hard work of determined Canadians at home who collectively supported the armed forces overseas during two world conflicts. Assembled from public and private collections across Canada, the artworks tell the stories of ordinary men and women who wielded tools, searched for submarines, worked the land, and guarded prisoners. Through them we witness unprecedented developments in manufacturing, travel, and social upheavals such as the changing roles of women entering the workplace and armed forces.

The gallery is open Monday to Friday 10AM-5PM and Saturday 12PM-4PM
