Yes. Canada was involved in both world wars. When World War 1 broke out in 1914, Canada who was then a dominion of the United Kingdom quickly followed immediately and without hesitation backed the United Kingdom's declaration war on Germany. This lead Canada to become more independent by it's sacrifices and contribution. 600,000 Canadians served in World War 1.

World War 2 broke out with the declaration of war between the United Kingdom and Germany, Canada who was now an independent country, declared war on Germany 10 days later. Canada aided Britain with military power, protection and personnel.

1.1 million men and women served in uniform for Canada during ww2, and by the end of the second world war, Canada would possess the fourth largest air force and third largest naval surface fleet in the world.
