When the war was appropriately categorized as a World War is a different date. Perhaps it became a world war when Japan and the US became part of the picture. At that point, hostilities were no longer confined to Europe but expanded to include North America and Asia as well.
It was a global concern by September 10, 1939. Canada, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa were all involved by that point.

Were the Canadians independent of the Brits in 1939?

Yes. We've been independent for a long time. There are still close ties, but Canada has had its own government since the 1800's
