Canada has made considerable contributions in organizations such as the UN, NATO and NORAD. The United Nations, or the UN, is an organization that promotes social and economic progress and peace world-wide. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization, or NATO, was formed in 1949 and was focused on protecting Western countries from the threat of invasion by Communist Nations. The North American Defence System, or NORAD, was an agreement created in 1957between Canada and the US. This agreement was designed in order to neutralize the possible threat of Soviet attack on North America.
Pierre Elliot Trudeau kept Canada united by avoiding the separation of Quebec. Trudeau gave a very powerful speech on May 14, 1980 in Quebec. A vote was to be made whether or not Quebec was to be separated from Canada. Trudeau pointed out in his speech that Quebec was the national government of French Canadians and the French Canadians and the French culture should be protected. Trudeau wanted French Canadians to feel more comfortable and to feel like they belonged to Canada by saying, “Canada will be a strong country when Canadians of all provinces feel at home in all parts of the country, and when they feel that all Canada belongs to them (Trudeau)”.

I’ll be talking about economy during 1945-1950. Economically, the effects of the ‘dirty thirties’ had been overcome through wartime production and centralized government control of the economy. Nevertheless, it was initially unclear to what extent the provincial governments would allow the federal government to retain many of these powers in peacetime. Financial prosperity helped create and was sustained by a major upsurge in the Canadian population. Canadian soldiers arrived home with 43,000 war brides and 21,000 children, and this signaled the start of the ‘baby boom,’ which would be at its most prolific in the decade after 1945.
The Railway had an enormous impact on Canada prior to 1914. The Railway connected the former colonies within the nation of Canada.
