Feature Exhibit "Women on the Homefront – Women’s contributions during World War II"

April 9 - Spring 2017

With thousands of Canadian men overseas, it was the women of Canada who harvested the crops, kept factories running, looked after the children, and raised money for the war. Women on the Homefront explores the contributions women made to the war effort at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, in Steveston, and inside their homes.
