Best Answer

During World War I, canadians were encouraged to do all they could to support the troops overseas. Farm women worked long hours in the fields, and women from the cities also replaced those who were overseas. Women began work in munitions depots.

During World War II, women took roles in almost every war industry, and often smaller roles such as telephone operators and clerks, and even truck drivers. Women began to learn Plumbing, mechanics, and electrical trades. 20 thousand took part directly in military service (reserve corps, navy/marines). Women began work in the RAF as engineers, and several became well-known.
