The Wartime Economy

 

Sir Joseph Wesley FLAVELLE oversaw a radical transformation that took place because of the war:

“Flavelle assumed far more industrial responsibility in November 1915 when the British government made him chair of the Imperial Munitions Board, a new agency of the British Ministry of Munitions with responsibility for all contracts let in Canada…. The IMB served as the umbrella agency that organized and supervised the greatest industrial effort Canada had ever seen…. By 1917 more than 600 Canadian factories, employing more than 250,000 workers, were producing almost 100,000 shells a day.”

The biographies listed below discuss some of the changes in various sectors of the country’s economy.
