- About the Mint
On October 3, 1914, the largest single movement of Canadians during the First World War set sail. Canada’s response to Britain’s declaration of war had been swift and
enthusiastic, with recruits quickly swelling the nation’s standing army of 3,110 to more than 30,000.
Over the course of the war, more than 650,000 men made that voyage. Sadly, more than 66,000 never returned home.
