In 1919, Canada signed the Treaty of Versailles, which formally ended the war, and joined the newly-created League of Nations as a member state in its own right.
Canadian War Museum
This site describes the history and source of the Canadian War Museum's war art collections of 13,000 works. It describes the origins of the Canadian War Memorials of the First World War (1914-1918), the Canadian War Records of the Second World War (1939-1945), and the post-war Canadian Armed Forces Civilian Artists Program.
The price of victory was high: approximately 23,000 Canadians laid down their lives serving in the army during the Second World War.
This article describes how the Canadian War Museum came to have custody of seventeen of the plaster figures of the Vimy Memorial created by Canadian sculptor Walter Allward, as well as the historical significance of the memorial.
