Military Training

Trainees are learning flag signallingDuring the Second World War Canada became the largest centre for the training of aircrew for the Allied cause when it became the host of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan.

Canada was given assurances by the British government that its main contribution to the war would be the training of aircrew. The result was that schools and facilities were established across the nation to assist in the training of military aircrew, with the Prairie Provinces hosting a large number of such schools.
