 Canada and Vimy Ridge - Background Information - Veterans Affairs Canada
When war broke out in Europe in August 1914, Canada was a nation of fewer than seven million persons, and although it controlled its internal affairs, at the international level it was legally a colony of the United Kingdom.
At the same time; Canada's military forces were very small and ill-equipped; the regular army was only 3,100 strong, and the part-time Militia was larger but was almost completely untrained.
France had already recognized the importance of Vimy Ridge to Canada, and in 1922 ceded in perpetuity to Canada 91 hectares at the top of the Ridge.

 Canada's Submariners, 1914-1923. by Marc Milner   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Canada's Submariners begins, appropriately enough, with the secret acquisition of two Chilean submarines from Seattle in August 1914 by the BC government.
Canada's Submariners brings the story home with the two H-boats stranded at Bermuda in 1918, moves with them into the postwar Canadian submarine flotilla, and ends with their scrapping in 1922.
Canada's Submariners is thus an eclectic and unsystematic ramble through several lives and several services, being neither a comprehensive account of the ten submariners as a group or a history of the Canadian submarine service.

 Coming to Canada
At around the same time as groups of Mennonites were settling in Russia, many Swiss Mennonites were moving from Pennsylvania to "Upper Canada." Attracted by available, inexpensive land, as well as the prospect of living under British rule, the first few Swiss Mennonite families left Pennsylvania shortly after the U.S. War for Independence in 1776.
Unlike the fairly steady trickle of Swiss Mennonites to Canada from the 1780's until the mid 1800s, the Russian Mennonites came to Canada in flash floods.
As Canada sought to settle and develop the Western Prairies, the government began to advertise and accept European immigrants - especially those with farming skills.

 Canada: Nickel Five-Cent Piece, 1922   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Canada is justly proud of her role as a world leader in nickel production.
The value of nickel as a coinage metal has been recognized for many years; not only is it attractive but it is also tough enough to withstand the wear and tear of commercial use for long periods.The use of nickel for Canadian coins dates back to 1922, when the first large five-cent piece was introduced.
The design for the reverse of Canada's first nickel five-cent pieces is very simple, composed only of two maple leaves, the word CANADA, the value, and the date.

 William Z. Foster, Bankruptcy, 1922
The working theory of the Trade Union Educational League is the establishment of a left block of all the revolutionary and progressive elements in the trade unions, as against the autocratic machine of the reactionary bureaucracy.
At its first National Conference, held in Chicago, August 26-27, 1922, the League laid out a broad revolutionary industrial policy, upon the basis of which it is uniting the militants and carrying on its educational work in the unions.
Since then (this is being written in October, 1922) thousands of local unions, scores of central labor councils, and five international unions,* Railway Clerks, Maintenance of Way, Butcher Workmen, Fire Fighters, and Amalgamated Food Workers, have adopted and endorsed general amalgamation projects.

 Canada - history of the flag (1921-1957)
I know that the date 1924 is always bandied about as the date of this flag's formal adoption, (including by the authors of the excellent "Symbols of Canada" kit put out by the Canadian Government's Secretary of State's Office), but I think this is incorrect.
The Royal Canadian Air Force orders that "The Canadian Red Ensign with a shield of the Coat-of-Arms of Canada in the fly is to be flown in addition to the RCAF Ensign, at all units of the RCAF.
A Canadian order in council allows the Canadian Red Ensign to be used on federal buildings inside and outside Canada until a national flag for Canada is designed.
