The Loyalists were people who supported the British.
The Loyalists were a group of political refugees.
Upper Canada was created by Loyalists in 1791 by the United Kingdom to conduct the central third of the lands in British North America and to remain Loyalist refugees from the USA after the American Revolutionary war.
The Loyalists brought to Upper Canada their ideas about elections, freehold land, systematic planning of townships and also brought the English language. This affected the developement in the future vastly.

had remained British so they settled there.
Now Upper Canada is part of Ontario.
