Although in World War I, "The Great War" fighting ended on "Armistice Day", November 11, 1918, the Treaty of Versailles which formally ended the war was not signed until June of 1919. More importantly, the impact of the war extended long past the official end-date. All the maps in this chapter look at aspects of the war effort and its outcomes on Canadians over the entire time period of 1914-1919.
The interactive map: Canadian Military Hospitals and Cemeteries in Europe shows these in relationship to where the main battle campaigns of the war were fought. Information is also available regarding the total numbers of beds and the total numbers of graves in these areas. Casualties and Medical Care Facilities in Canada (interactive map) , looks at the situation from the Canadian point of view regarding the proportions of soldiers killed and where they came from, and the convalescent facilities available for wounded soldiers returning home. Another interactive map shows Enlistment and Military Installations in Canada. Enlistment is shown by province, and shows the large number of enlistees as a proportion of the eligible male population. Military installations include training facilities, and also "alien" internment camps and receiving stations across the country.
The Royal Newfoundland Regiment in St John's (interactive map) gives a micro-scale depiction of the impact of the war on streets and neighbourhoods in an individual city - not part of Canada at that date of course. As in many other cities across Canada however, the impact of the war on the local population was devastating. Here the outcome of the war for the 1420 individual enlistees are mapped on the background of a historical plan of St John's originally printed in 1915.
Finally graphs charting the Victory Loan Campaigns, 1917-1918 and the Canadian Patriotic Fund, 1914-1919 illustrate fundraising for the funding of the war effort, and for support of wives and dependants of soldiers, respectively.
