1867: Independent dominion

Politically and legally under British rule

Britain could override every canadian decission

Canada had more power over themselves

Being French in Canada
Allowed to continue to govern themselves according to their own customs

Catholics were excluded from public positions
Important because of their contribution to agriculture, industry, commerce and the professions.

Loyalty was taken for granted by the british-speaking canadians

Not always understood/accepted
accent, traditions, values
Being British in Canada
"It was a real shocker..as if i was in a foreign country, and here I was thinking Canada, being a part of the British Empire and all that, that I would be received as a wonderful person"
Aboriginal people
Most of Canada were Aboriginal territory

The British wanted the land and the workers.

Initially: ignore, challenge or negotiate the settlers.
