Warsaw Pact

The Warsaw Pact (also referred to as Warsaw Treaty, the unofficial name of the Treaty of Friendship, Co-operation and Mutual Assistance) was a military organization headed by the Soviet Union, consisting of eastern European Communist states. The pact was established in 1955 as a response to a perceived threat from the NATO alliance to which Canada belonged.

The catalyst for creation of the Warsaw Pact was the integration of a re-militarized West Germany into the NATO alliance after ratification of the Paris Agreements.

The Pact remained a potential adversary for Canada throughout the Cold War. When Communism collapsed in Europe after the dismantling of the Soviet Union, the Pact was dissolved officially in Jul 1991.
