The role for the Canadian children in World War 2 was to keep rent and money coming home. While all the fathers and men of the house were at war, there was no body to farm or bring in money for the family. Kids would work long hours, and all the time, just to make ends meet.

Many Canadian children also helped by collecting scrap metal which was then brought to factories and used to make supplies for the war-front and the soldiers.
