Canada's role in the Battle of the Atlantic was to protect supply convoys from Northern America to Russia. Canada sent out convoys to Britain, but Adolf Hitler was aware of this, and started to destroy the supplies. Once Hitler destroyed the convoys it was then up to Canada to supply its navy for the Battle of the Atlantic
