Best Answer

Canada gained nothing from World War 1. They only joined the war because they were apart of the British Empire and needed to keep their alliance with Britain.

__

Canada entered the war because of a huge surge of support for England. Entering the war had nothing to do with keeping up an alliance. WW1 and Vimy Ridge in particular, was seen as a watershed for Canada with the country becoming more independent.

Prior to 1763, France and England had been involved in several wars that had spilled over into their American colonies. The last and best known of these was the French and Indian War (1754-1763). This war actually began in America and spread to become a global war between England and France, the two great 18th century powers, and their allies. The war had several important results. It was a training ground for American military officers who served with the British army in the colonies. George Washington, for example, established himself as a capable military leader at that time. The war created a need for greater communication and interaction between the colonies. This began the long, difficult process of breaking up regional distrust among the colonies. Most importantly, the war ended the French threat to the colonies, putting an end to their dependence upon Britain for protection.

The English colonies in the New World had grown substantially since their establishment. By the year 1763, most of the region known today as Canada was under British control. Britain had acquired Canada through the Peace of Paris in 1763, which officially ended the French and Indian War (called the Seven Years' War in Europe). At the same time, Great Britain acquired Florida from Spain, who had been an ally of France during the war. Later, these two allies would become the allies of America in its struggle for independence. Other land under British rule in the New World included the thirteen colonies of the Atlantic seaboard and the eastern basin of the Mississippi River. The land along the Atlantic was acquired by settling colonists in the New World to protect land claims made by earlier explorers. Like the Canadian land, the Mississippi land was obtained from the French in the Peace of Paris. Much of this territory also experienced Indian uprisings and was still considered wilderness.

Answer

Canada supplied cannon fodder for the British Empire and gave them access to resources at a cut rate. Even in the Second World War Canada gave lives and resources willingly without the Lend Lease costs demanded by the USA.

Answer

Canada was a strategic location in preventing the French and Spanish, which were Britain's enemy at the time, gaining complete control over the Americas.

There was a race for global dominance at the time between Britain, France and Spain in which all three countries were rushing to take control of the new lands for resources, scientific discovery and military strategic purposes. A British-controlled empire at this location would also serve to assist in defending British Empire states from an invasion by the Russian Empire, since Russia could be reached easily from the Americas.

The Treaty of Paris in 1763, ending the war for dominance, meant that France had to hand over the Canadian territories to Britain as one of the conditions in ending the war.

britain lost a great deal in the war, most of her empire was pawned to pay America for her help (ie for lend lease) .

All it did gain was the moral high ground because she was the only one to stand up against the Nazi's alone when all others (countries) were resigned to accepting that the Nazi's were here to stay.

Plus we don't have to speak German and eat sauerkraut.
