Consumers' News


On the eve of the Second World War Prime Minister Mackenzie King determined to avoid the problems of profiteering, hoarding and inflation which plagued Canada's contribution in the First World War. Under the powers conferred by the War Measures Act, 1914 (5 Geo. V, ch. 2), an order-in-council (P.C. 2516, 3 September 1939) established the Wartime Prices and Trade Board, initially composed of only three senior public servants, "to provide safeguards under war conditions against the undue enhancement in the prices of food, fuel and other necessities of life, and to ensure an adequate supply and equitable distribution of such commodities." - Description from Library and Archives Canada (R200-216-X-E)
