This New Brunswick At War exhibit was associated with a larger Canada Remembers project of the Canada Department of Veterans Affairs to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II. Its main purposes are:

  • to commemorate those who fought and died on land, at sea and in the air,
  • to remember the men, women and children who rallied to support Canada's war effort in the home, school and factory,
  • to create a renewed understanding among all Canadians of the causes and consequences of war.

The story line was developed around the contributions of New Brunswickers both on the home front and in the war zones. A short written account of New Brunswick at War as well as a short bibliography for further reading follows:
