The Effects of the Great Depression in Canada

The Effects of the Great Depression in Canada The Economy Falls The Effects of the great depression As it stands the era known as The Great Depression which, beginning on black tuesday, october 29, 1929 put at least 33,000,00 people (mainly men) out of work. some

economists speculate that it was caused by the crash in the wall street stock market but it could have been the fact that with the end of the first world war 11 years prior and the economy dying down people didn't have the money to spend on commodities, so no money equals no spending. Canada was especially hit hard by the stock market crash as our economy at the time so heavily reliant on natural resources. We saw a massive loss in employment, and prices for farm The Effects of the great depression -Continued

Another part of the depression was the impact it had on Canada's population. The amount of people in the country during the 1930s was at its lowest since the 1880s. A large factor of this was the fact that in 1935 we accepted less than 12,000 people which is a staggering drop from the 169,000 people we were letting in in 1929 this number would not climb above 17,000 until the end of the decade. Know this wouldn't have been a problem but while our immigration rate was falling, our deportation rate was rising with less than 2,000 people deported in 1929 to 7,600 in just 3 years. There were close to 30,000 immigrants sent packing back to their home country over

Rise of the Unions The unizazation of the workforce was kicked into motion when Local unions assemblies and created ties with larger british and american unions in their trade. One day in 1872 workers in Montreal and Ontarios industrial towns rallied behind the nine hour movement, which people wanted to change the working hours from 12 hours a day to 9 hours a day. 3 men in particular led the way, Hamilton's James Ryan, Toronto's John Hewitt and Montreal's James Black.Then on May 15th, Toronto's printers

employes struck against employer George Brown, which led to workers parading through the streets of Hamilton, Toronto. The Tragedy of Unemployment Relief Camps Once the great depression was in full swing so to speak the federal government of canada sanctiond the creation of Unemployment relief camps such as the woodcutting camp in Hope BC shown in the second picture down on the right.
