Prime Ministers of Canada Resources: Robert Borden

robertborden

Eighth in the line of leaders of Canada, Robert Borden became Prime Minister in 1911. During the 9 years he was head of the country, he helped lead Canada through the Great War, and the years that followed.

Seeing how much Canada contributed to the wars, he worked hard to establish an independence from Britain, allowing us to have a separate voice.

During his time in parliament, there was a fire in the centre block of the offices – of which he escaped, though singed.
