Both World Wars were going on for quite a while before the American cleanup hitters arrived; Canada, Australia and Great Britain posters started several years earlier. In Canada, some of the best graphic artists in the country pitched in.

Some of the best posters are at the Canadian War Poster Collection at McGill University in Montreal.
