Default Canadian paratrooper jacket?

Just picked this up at an estate sale. I believe the owner to have been in the 82nd Airborne, but do not know when he served. I can not find any information on the maple leaf being gold instead of white or red on the patch. I also can not see any printed information on the interior of the jacket. Is this WWII issue or post war? I have found contradicting information online and thought I would get an answer from the experts. The pin and patches were in the pocket. Thanks in advance for the help.

What I have learned is that it is a post war Canadian Army bush jacket. Is this thing worth anything? I see no holes or staining.

Yes, definitely post-war. It's probably worth more for the patches in the pocket than the badge itself. These are not at all uncommon even now.

The wing is the much more common non army Jump wing. Usually called the 'Air-Force' wings though it was for anyone who quilified on a Para course but did not serve in an operational para unit.

The modern equlivent it the red maple leaf one.
