Source III portrays that Canadian nationalism was created by the victory of the Battle of Vimy Ridge and how the battle unified and strengthened Canada as a nation. The source embraces civic nationalism and illustrates how a strong sense of patriotism for one’s country can be founded and can further inspire and establish nationalism. For example, the Canadian soldiers that fought at Vimy Ridge were patriotic and fought for Canada, and the results and rewards of the battle were significant to the war.

As a country Canada’s strengths included, gaining autonomy through persevering and showing just how mature and ready Canadians were to be in charge of their own army; and be recognized as a separate country from Britain. Another one of Canada’s strengths was how calmly autonomy was achieved after the war. Canada did not need to make a fuss about becoming their own country because it was obvious that they were already ready for that. Their proof was presented in how they planned and executed their battles, and fought alongside Britain to successfully defeat
World War One was a huge event in World History, and it is widely considered as a terrible thing although it may not be as bad as you may think. As time continues, society evolves. This centuries evolution could be inspired by and correlated alongside World War One. Seeing what Canada is today, it may not have been possible without the First World War. The First World War had the most significant impact on the Canadian nation, changing it for decades to come.
During the nineteenth century, America shifted from a small, developing country into a world power. One of the events that led to this development was the War of 1812. This war is often called “America’s second war for independence” because Great Britain continued its interference in America’s affairs. There is not one definite cause that started the war but many factors that blended with one another. These factors can be grouped into three main concerns which are maritime impressment, territorial expansion, and the Republican War Hawks.
Today, Canada is seen as a multicultural and peaceful nation that has evolved over the course of history. This great nation would never have been possible without the impact that former Prime Minister, Lester B. Pearson left on this country. His achievements and insights profoundly affected and shaped Canada’s nation. First, peacekeeping is an important part of Canada’s heritage and a reflection of its fundamental beliefs that Pearson implemented after dealing with world changing situations and winning a Nobel Prize. Also, his contributions as a liberal leader as well as the flaws and controversy with Diefenbaker did in fact define this country.
Canada has many factors that cause it to be the strong and independent country it is and is seen as today.

The independence gained from Canada’s successful contributions to battles allowed their forces to fight under their own command. Canada was recognized at the Paris Peace Conference and signed The Treaty of Versailles independently. Later on, Canada joined the League of Nations, making their mark in world politics.

Of the 630,000 Canadians that served in the war, more than 10,500 either sacrificed their lives or got injured in a World War 1 battle that changed the way Canadians looked at themselves (Morton, Desmond. " First World War (WWI). " The Canadian Encyclopedia. N.p., n.d. Web. 10
One of the most obvious repercussions of the war was the massive anti-British movement in the colonies. This anti-British movement was kindled by the increase in taxation on colonies. The British increased the taxation on the colonists due to the massive debt generated by the French and Indian war. Another reason behind this anti-British movement was the proclamation of 1763. The proclamation of 1763 was a British attempt to “cool down” tensions between the indians and the british.
The events in American history have also affected Canada from a political perspective, which lead to the Democracy that is present today. Another way the U.S. has affected Canada is from a military perspective because Americans are quick to jump to war and Canada has had to help control them which lead to them being peacekeepers. The United States helped mold the Canadian identity by being both a threat and support to the nation; this will continue into the 21st century but Canada will keep it’s unique identity. A country 's culture can be seen as interchangeable with identity; in Canada there is evidence of American culture everywhere.
