Canada at War, created by Historica Canada

This guide is intended to assist teachers and students as they study Canada’s involvement in the Second  World War. It highlights some of the significant historical themes and events of that period but is not meant to  be a comprehensive history of Canada and the war; in fact, some teachers may choose to highlight different  aspects of this period in their classes, such as the naval war on Canada’s doorstep or Canada’s participation in  the bombing offensive against Germany. Nonetheless, the content presented here constitutes a meaningful entry point into examining the country’s involvement in one of the 20th century’s pivotal armed conflicts. Additionally,  the skills students will develop in the activities will apply to any existing units being used in class by teachers.
