This meant that Howe was in charge converting the Canadian war-time economy into a free-prise economy with minimal government control. Howe, being one of the most optimistic men in parliament believed there would be a shortage of goods rather than a surplus. The concentration of the reconstruction was to return factories to civilian and private production, and stimulation the construction industry to make up for the losses in the Great Depression. This program was very successful and the government regulations were largely abolished. Howe had changed the Canadian economy back to where it was self sustaining, and is continuing to run smoothly today (6).
Furthermore, Medicare also brought benefits not only to local people but also immigrants. It protected their rights and encouraged them to better adapt their new life in Canada. Immigrants do not feel discrimination in this country since they are able to enjoy the equal medical service treatment as the local. To sum up, Medicare did exert positive and profound influence on
Throughout Canadian history, free trade in particular has changed Canada and it’s economy for the better. The free trade agreement (FTA) signed in 1989, assisted Canada’s economy in many ways, such as removing most of the tariffs on trade goods, increasing trade with the USA, and leading the way to the creation and signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). All of these boosted Canada’s economy and strengthened the bonds with new and old trade partners. After this agreement was established, it becomes clear very quickly that the FTA was exactly what Canada needed. As well as opened new doors to opportunities for Canada.
The Canadian Homefront Contribution Toward World War 2 The art of winning a war, as perceived by many, is through the victory of each battle along the way. Although valid, truly winning a war is determined by the battle at home, where the contributions of each individual are equally, if not more, significant than those made on the front lines. The decisive action taken up by the Canadian Government on the homefront during World War 2 ensured the continuous success of financing the war effort, while also providing the much-needed supplies and resources for war-borne industries. The Government’s efforts were likewise significant in maintaining a steady number of combatants through the re-establishment of conscription in the latter stages
Canada as a whole has a broader legal system, than a narrow legal system where democracy has very little importance. The “Living Tree” approach versus strict construction set in the constitution act (1867) paved the path for the major issues we still address today. Without the “Living Tree” approach in Canada’s legal system, we would not have the broad points of view we on major issues we face today. Canada is able to over come many boundaries the country faces everyday and because of the “Living Tree” approach to the legal system in Canada, the country us able to improve the legal system to become one of the best legal systems in the
Accessibilities to these kinds of services increase the overall health of the general population. With healthier people means longer life expectancies and an overall boost of the economy. It is well proven in medical studies that in a universal health care system, the standard of living of each individual is increased. Studies show that people living healthier lives allows for them to maximize their contribution to society. It is also known that Canadian citizens have the longest life expectancies in the world, higher than the United States of America by three percent.
Trudeau pledged to bring home a new constitution with charter of rights (Sauerwein). This confirms that Trudeau can make a large commitment and still deliver results, which most politicians do not do. Trudeau essentially won everything he had aimed for all his life (Gwyn). Trudeau set a goal that he wanted to help protect the future for Canadian citizens by creating the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and was able to achieve this phenomenal action that will be forever remembered within Canadian history. By patriating the Constitution and its grounded Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Trudeau had disconnected the last colonial links between Great Britain and
The outcome of the second World War had a beneficial change on Canada leading to an autonomous refined nation.

The nightmares of trench warfare from decades past strengthened Canadian intelligence. Once again, Canadians proved that they were a nation who deserved autonomy, could lead a battle with diplomacy, and ultimately ensure victory on foreign soil. Therefore, D-Day was significant to Canadians because the valor showed promise to the other nations that we were a capable country that deserved
The building of the Canadian Pacific Railway was a very significant event in the development of Canada. It was important for the development of the West, which there was no easy way to get to. It benefitted the Canadian economy, allowing it to flourish and grow into what it has become today. Lastly, it allowed for unification of Canada as one whole country. The building of the CPR (Canadian Pacific Railway) was important for the development of the West.
Robert’s story did not occur in isolation and is, instead, is situated in the specific social, political and economic context of the late 1940s to 1950s. By this time, World War Two (WWII) had subsided, the economy was recovering, and Canada found itself fairly well situated to accept new immigrants (Hawkins, 1988, p.99). Fuelled by the expansion of certain industries (e.g. construction), this period “saw the beginning of a significant economic boom in Canada” (Kelly & Trebilcock, 2010, p.316; Troper, 1993, p.250). Therefore, what had previously been characterized by a relatively restrictive climate for immigration, due to the fear during WWII, was gradually replaced with more “libera[l]” (Kelly & Trebilcock, 2010, p.318) immigration policies
All the necessary materials and funds to rebuild the city and its surrounding area could not have come from Canada alone. Although other countries like Great Britain, Australia and China did provide additional support, the United States of America was the country that really made a difference to the survivors of the Halifax Explosion, and the relationship between them and Canada grew as a result. Boston and Halifax demonstrate what a lasting impression could achieve—even a century after the incident, the two cities still hold true to their friendship despite their distance and differences. The immense support and dedication America showed towards this cause tied the two close countries even closer, and to this day, Canada and the United States share a partnership that cannot be easily
This is really good because it shows that we have a good healthcare system, and the population in Canada is more likely to increase than decrease. Canada compared to Nigeria is very high in life expectancy. Nigeria 's life expectancy is 54/52 years which means that people in Nigeria aren 't expected to live for long. Canada is also high in primary school enrollment, which is 100%/99%. This is really high compared to pakistan 's primary school enrollment, which is
For a long time the debates had been going about how was the better prime minister of Canada. On the the top of most lists of best prime ministers are Mackenzie King and Sir John A. Macdonald. For example, according to the Expert Survey that was made in 2013 “Laurier came first, Macdonald second, and King third, but the difference in their overall scores was negligible”. Both prime ministers had a strong vision of the country that helped shaped Canada to become the country it is today(in 2015). Thesis: Sir John A.Macdonald was one of the founding fathers, but William Lyon Mackenzie King had to lead the country through the part of Depression and WWII, and they both have made different positive contributions to Canada and are highly respected
