After World War I, during the interwar period, Canada saw a prosperous future in the 1920’s as the economic, social, and political side of their country’s autonomy began to grow. During the roaring 20’s despite the swaying influences from neighbouring countries, Canada began to carve its own identity out of the very rock it stood on. Overall, Canada continued to have a limited amount of autonomy in the political, social, and economic aspects of uring the Interwar Period.
