The Home Front in Saskatchewan also saw Boy Scouts encouraging people to buy Victory Bonds.

World War I had a major impact on Saskatchewan. Seasonal workers were among the first in Saskatchewan to volunteer and as the war dragged on there was a shortage of labour. At the same time there was an increased demand for more grain which caused a greater reliance on intensive agricultural practices. As the casualty rate soared most communities felt the loss of their young men. During the war the home front was very active in raising funds to support the soldiers and their families.
