Canada Between Two World Wars

Top of page

A vivid review of life in Canada between the end of World War I and the beginning of World War II. Students of Canadian history will gain a new awareness of the people and events that made these twenty years such an important part of the growth of the country. Here were years of prosperity followed by the years of the Great Depression, as Canada went through a severe maturing process. While political, economic and social changes are emphasized, they are viewed against the total life of the Canadian people. For those who lived during this era, the film is full of nostalgia and reminiscence; for younger Canadians, however, it offers an eye-opening glimpse of Canada's past. (Abridged version of Between Two Wars series.)
