Administrative history

During the Second World War, the National War Finance Committee was established by the Minister of Finance to organize, advertise and conduct all public loans used to finance Canada’s war effort.
They undertook a series of nine Victory Loan campaigns, promoting the sale of war bonds, war savings certificates and war savings stamps. Local committees were organized to promote sales in each community.
The chair of the Moose Jaw committee was Guy R. Tretheway, K.C.. The Campaign office was located at 16 High Street East. The Moose Jaw committee produced high per capita results for every drive.
