When was conscription introduced in 1914?
Conscription was not introduced in 1914, it was only introduced in 1917 because the number of volunteers dropped dramatically between 1916 and 1917. Due to this drop, the government had to introduce the law of conscription in Canada. Before 1917 men were eager to volunteer, but come 1917 they just lost all eagerness and stopped volunteering. In short, conscription was only introduced in 1917 due to the lack of Canadian volunteers.

How was conscription introduced by Australia during World War 2?
Conscription was introduced thanks to the Labor Government under Prime Minister John Curtin. Technically, Australia didn't have conscription. All troops for overseas theatres were volunteers. The troops fighting in Papua New Guinea were militia, who were conscripted, but were not supposed to fight overseas. Since PNG was under Australian control a point was stretched and militia were sent there, since the AIF was in North Africa.
