For many families living in Canada, the Great Depression brought poverty and extremely poor living conditions. Families had to make sacrifices, downsize, and sometimes even live on the road. Families could hardly afford the necessities they were used to having. This included clothes (as seen in this picture). It was a struggle for many Canadians, but luckily enough, the Great Depression finally ended in the late 1930s.
