An Act to Amend the Pension Act

Policies and social attitudes change. This Act that was presented to Canadian Parliament on August 1946 aimed to address some amendments needed to the original Pension Act that had been enacted back in 1928, Although some of the changes that this document introduced were not substantial but rather in terms of style and writing, like for example the substitution of the term "World War I" for "Great War", some were more representative of societal changes in attitude. One proposed change was to include the provision that when discussing members of the forces in all Acts, it be understood that it included all female members of the forces and members of the Canadian Women's Army Corps except as otherwise expressly enacted in the Act.
