This paper will clearly demonstrate that Canadian society between 1880 and 1920 saw significant enlargement in terms of women's gender roles, but even at the end of WWI, women's participation in the labor force was perceived to be a temporary necessity. As the wartime economy returned to its civilian form, most Canadians expected gender roles to return to their previous (im)balance. The seeds for the emancipation of women, however, had been sewn and it was only a matter of time before they would grow.
