During WW2, of the 800,000 military vehicles of all types built in Canada, 168,000 were issued to Canadian Forces & 38% of the total Canadian production went to the British. The remainder of the vehicles went to the other Allies. This meant that the Canadian Army "in the field" had a ratio of one vehicle for every three soldiers, making it the most mechanized field force in the war.
