The dates of introduction varied from country to country. Germany reintroduced conscription in 1935 and Britain in April 1939, for example. Some countries, such as France, had conscription throughout the inter-war period.

There were more volunteers during world war 1 than WW2 so the debate of conscription was not as heated during that time. Near the end of WW2, conscripts in BC refused to go and held riots protesting Mackenzie King's decision of ensuing conscription. During WW1, Prime Minister Borden promised there would be no conscription and as well in WW2 Mackenzie King had also made that promise. Both conscription debates were revolved around the shortage of soldiers over seas. The issue of conscription divided the nation during WW1 and WW2.
