The Reinstatement in Civil Employment Act

This Act from 1946 was passed by the Parliament of Canada with the purpose of providing the reinstatement in civil employment of discharged members of the Canadian forces and other individuals who mobilized during the Second World War. The Act intended to regulate the reintegration process of ex-members into civil society, in an attempt to make easier the transition of labour for a war economy into a post-conflict, peacetime economy. Social benefits and considerations like those needed for disabled veterans were also considered in the Act.
