National Service Call

During National Service Week, an obligatory call for information is made by the National Service of Canada. In addition to asking standard questions (i.e. name, age, province, etc.), the survey asks health and work related questions, including “Would you be willing to change your present work for other necessary work at the same pay during the war?” and “Are you willing, if your railway fare is paid, to leave where you now live, and go to some other place in Canada to do such work?”
