Over 600,000 men and women enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) during the First World War (1914-1918) as soldiers, nurses and chaplains. The CEF database is an index to those service files, which are held by Library and Archives Canada.
Since its inception in 1872, the National Archives of Canada, now Library and Archives Canada, has acquired, preserved and commemorated the cartographic heritage of Canada and there are now some two million items in the collection. This search tool provides access to approximately 40,000 item-level descriptions from the "old map card catalogue." The item-level descriptions are written in the language of the original map, plan, or chart; the majority of the descriptions are written in English.
