Arthur

Canada's Most Patriotic Village

The Village of Arthur received this recognition in 2002, when David Tilson the M.P.P for Dufferin-Peel-Wellington-Grey stated in the Ontario Legislature that because of Arthur's extraordinary effort in World War II the community would be recognized as "Canada's Most Patriotic Village".

Achievements that garnered Arthur this title include that during World War II the government ran War Bond and Victory Bond campaigns to raise money to carry on the war effort. In the first campaign in 1940, Arthur Village led all communities in Canada in reaching its objective. In every following campaign (6 in all) the Village let all communities in the country in reaching its objective. As well, during the war, a Navy League was formed in most Canadian communities, to raise funds for Canadian Sailors at sea. 

In September, 1944, Arthur Council received an award for having raised the most per capita of any community in Ontario. A series of murals are featured in the downtown core in keeping with Arthur's war history.
