Notes:
Victory Loan Parades were a fundraising activity surrounding the Victory Bond campaign. Victory Bonds were sold in an effort to raise money to help finance World War II. The Canadian Government sold Victory Bonds to Canadian citizens, private corporations and various organizations in order to raise funds to pay for the war. The bonds were a loan to the government that could be redeemed with interest after 5,10, or 20 years. After World War II the campaign eventually led in 1946 to the government issuing Canada Savings Bonds in order to encourage Canadians to continue the savings habit that Victory Bonds had established.
