EDIT: Heres some more from further down the page, its a bit more relevant

This effect was even greater in Canada. Canadians proved they were a nation and not merely subjects of a distant empire. Indeed, following the Battle of Vimy Ridge, many Canadians began to refer to Canada as a nation "forged from fire". Canadians had proved themselves on the same battlefield where the British and French had previously faltered, and were respected internationally for their accomplishments. Canada entered the war as a Dominion of the British Empire, but when the war came to a close, Canada emerged as a fully independent nation. Canadian diplomats played a significant role in negotiating the Versailles Treaty. Canada was an independent signatory of the treaty, whereas other Dominions were represented by Britain. Canadians commemorate the war dead on Remembrance Day. In French Canada, however, the conscription crisis of 1917 left bitterness in its wake.[/

I don't know. My history isn't bad, but really, World War I was meaningless, vicious destruction, and there's really no justification for it, and it's really not that interesting. Just disappointing really.

I would say the freeing of the Netherlands for a battle in Europe, because Canadians were put in charge of that campaign. For the home front I would say the French got more hostile, women were allowed to vote, and Canadian people began showing a sense of nationalism and sense of cultural identity. Research them all more in-depth haha

Yeah, and the Americans like to take credit for wars they didn't win.

WW2, for example. Russia won that war for us, not the U.S.
#16
if you're looking for things that happened at home, you could include the strife between Quebec and English speaking Canada on their willingness to go to war, the treatment of First Nations People, and Black Canadians in the military, the changing of the city name of Berlin, Ontario to Kitchener, and the internal political strife between the liberal and conservative governments over the war

If you knew any history at all, you'd know canada was regarded as the toughest army in the war...

I don't know many Americans who take credit for winning the war in Europe, we just helped with D-Day and the bombing of German cities. Mostly we just talk about how we won the Pacific Theatre by ourselves (we did have help I didn't mean it to be that egotistical).

Funny, because most Americans I know believe they took down Hitler single-handedly.

Not to mention Hollywood makes it seem like the U.S. was the ultimate good-guy country that saved everyone and killed all evil in just about every war movie that they've made.

Mostly it's just propaganda and do you honestly believe everything Hollywood puts out? Some people do think that we did single-handedly take out Hitler and there's some who'll think that Britain/Canada/Russia..etc took him out single-handedly. Those of us that actually did our research know that without the work we did together it would have ended differently, although the Soviet's did do a considerable amount more than everyone else in Europe.
