Economic Effects

Canada supplied many resources and raw materials to the war and thus their economy boomed, despite their debt of over $10 million dollars. The supplies Canada gave to the war had to be made in large supplies fast, resulting in many factories across Canada.
Many factories also converted in order to send supplies to their Canadian troops. For example, Inglis Appliances, in Toronto made Bren Machine Guns, and Sten sub Machine guns, and General Electric made search lights and radar for ships. Canadian Steel Car in Hamilton switched from making freight cars , to making fighter planes. General Motors in Oshawa, made over ONE MILLION trucks in WW2.
Because of this the agricultural sector was overtaken by the industrial and manufacturing sectors in Canada.
