    Before the outbreak of WW II the British Government had determined that it needed facilities outside the United Kingdom for the training of large numbers of aircrew for the Royal Air Force. Canada, with its large land areas and clear weather conditions was considered to be an ideal location. With the outbreak of WW II in September 1939 the decision was made among the Allies to make Canada the location for much of the British Commonwealth aircrew training.
