During World War II, conscription was a controversial and somewhat divisive step taken by the Canadian government in 1944; however, it did not adversely affect Canada's economy, which experienced a general "boom" as a result of the war. For one thing, the actual conscription enforced on Canada's population was quite small; it also occurred only during the last year of the war. For another, Canadian women (similar to women throughout the western nations) became more active in the work-force as a result of the war-time pressures.
pro of conscription-support the allies with more soldiers. con of conscription-ripped up the relations of English Canadians and the French Canadians. English wanted conscription, the French did not. Pros Volunterring overseas were slowing down by 1944. More people were needed to fullfill the Canadian troop commitment French Canadians denied to participate in the world war

I believe that conscription had a huge impact on Canada. It made Canada a middle power and without it Canadians and other people all around the world could be under shadow of German military today.
In England, WW1 conscription ended in 1919. For twenty years, there after that, there was no conscription in Britain. In 1939, conscription for World War II began, and did not end until the mid-1960's.

World War 1 had a positive effect on farmers in Britain and the US. Due to an increase in railroads, farmers were able to ship their goods to other locations.
Conscription was used in World War 1, when men wouldn't join the army the Government used conscription as a way of making men join. They had absolutely no choice.
Conscription is when the government forces men and women to go to war with out any kind of choice. Most of the English speaking Canadians agreed with Conscription but very few French-English Canadians agreed because of how they were treated during WW1. About 100,000 were conscripted in the Canadian army in WW2.The RCN and RCAF were all-volunteers.
Conscription in Canada during WWI did very little except cause contraversy. There was an election known as the "khaki election" where two candidates, Laurier and Borden were running for prime minister. Broden was for conscription Laurier was against. Borden won but barely even enlisted anyone, 100,000 enlisted but there were so many loopholes in the system that 90% of them got out of it.
The Compulsory conscription was ordered by Hitler in the World War 2, that was against the Treaty of Versailles
Conscription in World War 2 began before the United States entered the conflict
the issue of conscription did not only divided the politicians, it also divided the country. Some were strongly opposed to it. Some strongly supported it. Farmers in general opposed it. Conscription would take away more of their sons and hired men needed for their farms. Labour leaders opposed conscription. They felt factory workers were making and important contribution to the war. the loss of conscripted workers would severely limit Canada's production of food and wartime supplies. Labour leaders considered calling a general strike. Many farmers labour leaders were English Canadians. The strongest opponents, however, were the French-Canadians. They had little enthusiasm for World War 1. In Montreal and other parts of Quebec; 'anti-conscription' riots occurred during the summer of 1917. Quebec's less enthusiastic participation in the war effort was not understood by most English-speaking Canadians.
So many soldiers were being slaughtered that they had to introduce conscription to replace them.
Sometimes you didn't have a choice - the United States began using conscription in 1940. Conscription is, in case you didn't know, mandatory service in the armed forces if you are sound of mind and body. The United States no longer practices conscription. Other men - for example, Canadian men - did not need to be drafted. They volunteered in the armed forces to protect their homeland from foreign threats.
Conscription is another word for the draft. Men were required to join the military/navy or RFC and serve.
•This predicament started in early 1917 right down to the end of the war. World War I broke out in 1914 and Canada, as a collaborator of Great Britain, involuntarily found itself in the scrimmage.
Australia didn't have conscription during WWI; it was first used in the Vietnam War.
