War finance in Canada Ostle, Bernard


This thesis endeavours to list and compare the finance measures undertaken by the Dominion Government during the two great wars in Canada's history. However, emphasis has been placed on the war effort just concluded. Considerable space has been given over to a discussion of the means by which the Minister of Finance made available the funds necessary for the prosecution of the war — changes in the tax system, government borrowing, price and exchange control have been examined in some detail. A short note on Canadian Aid to Allies has been included.
