The Cold War, Peacekeeping, and Recent Conflicts, 1945 to the present
Canada became a respected international player through its commitments to Western defence and peacekeeping.

Home from the Second World War, veterans and their families returned to a peaceful and prosperous Canada. Visitors enter a post-war veteran’s home and walk through its well-appointed kitchen, where convenience and modernity are now the norm. No sooner have visitors left this suburban dream home than they are faced with the reality of the Soviet nuclear threat, and the onset of the Cold War.
