Building a nation: How did Canada start
Transcript of Building a nation: How did Canada start
When did the Dominion of Canada come into being?
- The Dominion of came into being on July 1, 1867
Which colonies joined the federation? How were they reorganized in 1867?
- New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Quebec Joined In 1867. Only three of them were reorganized into the new country named Canada. They were Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the pre-Confederation Province of Canada, upon Confederation, was severed into the provinces of Québec and Ontario.
Do you think these same reasons exist for today’s Canada?
-Yes, because if Canada is not created during the Confederation we would still be ruled by Britain.
Which groups do you think should be represented at a meeting to discuss today’s Canada?
-We think that the all groups should be represent Canada.
What assets did each of the new groups/regions bring to the newly formed country?
- They brought utilities, weapons and much more people. They also brought new ways of transportations.
What is the difference between a province and a territory?
- Provinces exercise constitutional powers in their own right, the territories exercise delegated powers under the authority of the Parliament of Canada.
Which ones joined Confederation as full partners?
-The Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia are joined in Confederation as full partners on 1867.
Why was this new country Canada formed?
- Canada was formed as a result of Confederation.
When and how have new provinces or territories been created?
- With confederation- Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia in 1867. The Manitoba in 1870, British Columbia in 1871, Prince Edward Island on 1873 Alberta and Saskatchewan in 1905, and the Newfoundland in 1949. New Brunswick and Nova Scotia were original Canadian provinces. They existed as colonies prior to Confederation. They were not ‘’created’’ as new provinces. Likewise British Columbia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland existed as colonies prior to entering Confederation. They were not “created” as new provinces. Rupert’s Land and Northwestern Territory were transferred from Britain to Canada on July 15, 1870, and became the Northwest territories. Manitoba was created as a province by the Government of Canada on July 15, 1870. The Alberta and Saskatchewan were created as provinces by the Government of Canada on September 1, 1905. Yukon was created as a territory by the Government of Canada on June 13, 1898. Nunavut was created as a territory by the government of Canada on April 1, 1999.
Are there new reasons for the existence of the country called Canada today?
-The Confederation was created to address the very real threat of invasion from the USA. Today the Canada was friend of the United States so has few corners about invasion Many members of Confederation see a net gain of money and resources from Canada so for them the reason for the existences is clear. If the Confederation was to change or disappear they would lose special status, power and free money.
Where and when did the three important meetings leading to the creation
of Canada take place?
Quebec conference, October 1864. Charlottetown conference, September 1864. Quebec conference, October 1864
Why is the term “Fathers of Confederation” confusing? Who did these men represent?
- It is confusing because there were two different "Fathers of Confederation". They represented their own colonies which were the Maritime colonies, and the Province of Canada.
Who was not (directly) represented at the Conferences in 1864-1866 (and later)? Why
were they excluded?
- Newfoundland and the first Nations.
What assets (strengths) did each of the new groups/regions bring to the newly formed country?
- They brought utilities, weapons and much more people. They also brought new ways of transportation.
Are these the same strengths that are valued/important in today’s Canada?
- Today we have much more advanced weapons like high tech guns that the armies uses today. We also have public transportations like; cars, trains, buses, and airplanes, government today
basically have the same ideas as the earlies except more advanced.
What document was produced by the delegates at the three Conferences?
- The British North America Act. The conference were the Quebec, London, and the Charlottetown conference.
