Following the American declaration of war on the British Empire, war immediately broke out along the borders of British-held Canada and Acadia in December of 1914. Quebec soon joined in the fight just days after the Americans declared war. The American and Quebecois strategies relied on taking Halifax in Acadia to disconnect British North America from Europe, and to also take the cities of Edmonton and Winnipeg to halt the railroad systems.

By 1915, Acadia fell to the Americans, while Quebecois troops occupied much of northeastern Canada. The Canadians managed to take Seattle and Saulte Ste. Marie early on, however were pushed out by April.
