Canadian Women's Army Corps
The Canadian Women’s Army Corps (CWAC) was an all-female branch of the Canadian Army during the Second World War. The role of the corps was to fill support roles in the Canadian Army, with it’s members working as secretaries, clerks, vehicle drivers, mechanics and many other non-combat military roles.
The CWAC was disbanded in 1964 as the Canadian Forces moved towards the integration of women in combat roles. Though relatively short-lived, the CWAC paved the way for future involvement of women in the Canadian Armed Forces.
