Salvationist/ War Cry Archive

Picture of early War CryThe Canadian War Cry was first published on November 1, 1884. Since that date, The War Cry has gone through many changes in format, size and design culminating in the current magazine format and name change to Salvationist (from May 2006 to present). Except for a few issues, copies of all War Cry’s/Salvationist’s published in Canada are in the territorial archives and on-line.

Gradually missing editions of The War Cry and Salvationist will be added.

Also, on line are issues of:

  • Faith & Friends. A monthly outreach magazine that shows Christ at work in the lives of real people and provides spiritual resources for those who are new to the Christian faith.
  • Foi & Vie. The French counterpart to Faith & Friends, published monthly.
  • Just for Kids. A weekly activity sheet for children ages 5-12 that contains Bible stories, puzzles, games and information about The Salvation Army.

Most issues are word-searchable. However, some issues have been scanned from microfilm and, although readable and downloadable, they are not word-searchable at this time.
