Military Personnel | Home Defence Volunteers | Civilian Workers |
Canada mobilized military personnel to serve on the battlefronts and vast numbers of civilians to work in war industries. There was full employment across the nation. After the depression years of the 1930s, men were eager to have regular wages even if it was for military duty.

Volunteers were an important part of the wartime effort and the government arranged to train willing participants in home defence.

This section on the human resources mobilized in Summerside, Prince Edward Island during the war has been subdivided into the following topics: Military personnel, Home defence volunteers, and Civilian workers.
