The 1920’s and into the 1930’s was when Canada lost her unique identity to her neighbours to the south (The United States.) Canada was Americanized, politically, economially, and socially. Canada adopted the US’s political response and policies during the Great Depression. Canada was economically depended on the US. Canada’s cultural prospective was also influenced by the US through entertainment and way of life.

Canada’s Prime Minister R.B Bennet during the years of the great depression, copied the FDR’s deal during the depression. The FDR was introduced by president Franklin Roosevelt’ “new deal for the American people.” Bennett relied on the new economic program of the US. Bennetts “new” policy failed with little success. Bennett’s new deal was only in his best interest, it helped few Canadians, and most believed he only used the FDR to win the next election.

Canada had also lost it’s economic identity. Canada helped to rebuild Canada’s economy, Canadians began to buy cars from the US ,and other commercial products. As the demand for American products grew, Canada’s identity was becoming more American. The US helped Canada rebuild an economy by making it an American one. Canada’s economic status was no longer Canadian.

The Canadian Culture was influenced by the US the most. Canadians began living like Americans. Canadians found themselves watching Hollywood films by Charlie Chaplin. People would line up by the dozens to see the latest Hollywood flick. In addition, the first Canadian Jazz recording was recorded in Toronto. The music which was recorded and produced in Canada was the same style as in the American music industry. Canadian potential actors had to travel to Hollywood if they wished to be noticed on the “big screen.”

In conclusion, Canada had lost her identity to the American way of life. Canada had copied US policies, Culture and economic status. The 1920’s-1930’s was a period were Canada began to los her unique Canadian identity to Americanization.
