Another way the baby boomers affected Canada in the 1950's60's was socially.

The TV was a new invention and was an amazing invention that could in trance kids for hours. Parents wanted a nice peaceful place where they could raised their kids without the craziness of city life. A job with very high demand was teachers. So as you can see, the economy went up enormously due to the companies focusing on the baby boom generation. Over 75 of the schools in Canada had a shortage of teachers and not enough classrooms in the 1950's60's. 2 So as you can see the baby boom generation was raised different socially then any other generation. It was higher then in 1929 before the Great Depression. 2 Another way they raised kids was with the TV. One major economic impact was the products sold. So the Americans also had an impact on the baby boom in Canada. Many parents who both worked needed people to look after their kids.
