Build your nest in western Canada

In the 1910s and 1920s, the format and style of immigration posters changed considerably. The earlier information-based posters were replaced with big colourful designs that combined familiar domestic images with views of prosperity. Rather than include information on immigration in the poster itself, the new posters were designed simply to pique the viewer's interest. A contact name was listed on the poster for those wanting further information.
