Canada's pavilion was half way between Palaces of Agriculture  Forestry, Fish and Game,  directly opposite the national pavilion of Ceylon. The  spacious structure, like most of the state pavilions  was conceived as a  club house. The building cost topped the 30,000 dollar mark. 

To attempt to cease the frontier life  that included prostitution and liquor, the Canadian Government (only 35 years old at the time), eagerly welcomed immigration from  Europe and the United States. One of the reasons the Canadian Government paid for the pavilion  was to help bring more  educated people into their country.

The Canadian pavilion did not have
    any  exhibits within their  building,
     but did have many paintings and
     displays of  timber in the Palaces.

Amazingly, they gave  promises of
free  land  for  settlers.

Commissioner General Hutchinson
      lived in this building and was its
official host.

The structure was dedicated on
May  18th.
