The nations of Europe were at war soon after the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary. The First World War was fought from 1914 to 1918. More than 650,000 Canadians and Newfoundlanders served in this war.  More than 66,000 of our service members gave their lives and more than 172,000 were wounded. Their contributions and sacrifices earned Canada a separate signature on the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. This Treaty formally ended the war. These wartime efforts helped Canada gain new respect on the international stage as an independent country.
