Transcript of Quebec Act+the Proclamation of 1763

The Proclamation of 1763 Introduction Quebec Act (After the surrender) The Quebec act was an agreement that
enlarged the boundaries of Quebec, to include Labrador, Ile D'Anticosti, Iles de la Madelaine, and a native territory south of the great lakes, which was taken by force. The act received royal agreement June 22, 1774, and became active May 1 1775 After the French had surrendered to the British,
(After the seven years war)The british had taken control of most of the French's land. Now They were trying to take control of most of the Natives land, but the Natives weren't ready to give up their land. This is where the proclamation started. The Proclamation of 1763 (The Treaties) - The Natives in British lands had
already sided with the French - The British fought with the Natives
multiple times The British realized that being allies with the Natives would help in controlling North America -Gov Lord Guy Carleton was largely responsible for the Quebec act, although not all of his policies were used in it Lord Guy Carleton The Proclamation of 1763 (Cons of the treaty) -He was the Baron Dorchester. That title was only used twice in British history, once in the peerage of Great Britain, and once in the peerage of the UK - The proclamation was written where as
the Natives preferred oral treaties - Native lands that the Natives absolutely needed could be kept - The selling of Native lands had to be completed
some what through the government (British) The proclamation of 1763 (Pros of the treaty) - Native lands could only be settled on after
speaking with the Native leader of that land Quebec act Opinions - Trappers, traders, and settlers weren't aloud
to enter Native lands without a government license Baron (title of nobility) - Roman Catholics were could not be elected for
the legislative Assembly (Groups of people in
upper and lower Canada who imposed taxes
and created laws) -The act was interpreted in a number of different ways - Native treaties were only as good as the
respect the Natives got from the
government in charge -Some thought that it was an attempt to rectify some of the issues from the Proclamation of 1763, which dramatically reduced the size of New France -others felt it was a way to treat the colonies French catholics more fairly Although there were some cons
of the proclamation, it is still a very important part in Canadian history End of The Quebec Act -American settlers were outraged when they heard about the stolen native territory -they considered the Quebec act as one of the "intolerable acts" , which contributed to the outbreak of the American revolution -the Quebec act became less affective when Loyalists began arriving in 1783. The act was eventually replaced by the Constitutional Act, 1979, which created Upper Canada and Lower Canada. Even though the British told colonists not to
go west of the Appalachians, they did anyway. As a result, for every 100 Europeans
in Quebec, 97 were French, and only 3 were British After the Proclamation - Priests and seigneurs tried to keep the
French culture Conlcusion -Governor General James Murray
was sent to Quebec to enforce
the Proclamation (Which was difficult) - James started to like the Natives - James gave many things to the french which angered British merchants 1 2 3 1 2 3 The proclamation of 1763 After the Proclamation and The Quebec Act The Quebec Act 1774 4 4 The Quebec Act and The proclamation of 1763
