I think we didn't go into a depression because we loaned weapons to the Allies during the beginning of World War 2. The money we received after the war kept us out of a depression.

Why did Canada not go into depression after World War 2?

Not sure why Canada would have fallen into a depression after the war when it was that very war that pulled the world (particularly the US) out of the depression. Canada's economy and the U.S. economy have always been tightly linked so when the U.S. was suffering under the depression in the 1930s, Canada's economy suffered as well. When the war pulled the U.S. out of the depression, its largest trading partner, Canada, flourished along with it.

How did world 2 end the depression?

It did not end the depression. We did have a lot of people go to work that had been unemployed, but that came from the government spending money on things for war. The funds that the government spent came from taxes paid by citizens. At the end of the war, we were really still in a depression, but we had built up manufacturing capability (to make the tools of war). So when the huge amounts of people all over the world needed to buy goods to rebuild after the war, the US was in a good position to sell them those items - that did solve the depression.
