Transcript of Reciprocity (Final Presentation)

Things traded between Canada & the USA. Reciprocity in Canada & the US In 1854, Great Britain and the British North American Colonies thought it would be a good idea to sign a Reciprocity Treaty with the United States. It was signed by Governor Elgin to eliminate custom tariffs of imports and exports. This allowed both countries to trade all natural resources freely between each other without any taxes. The reciprocity Treaty lasted 12 years. It helped both countries, but benefited Canada and the BNA colonies the most. Good Things About Reciprocity Benefited British North America's economy and the ties between other countrys.
Allowed farmers access to the larger market of America
Increased the amount of exports leaving British North America.
(Canada's exports grew by 33%) End of the Reciprocity Treaty The Reciprocity Treaty may have had many advantages however, one main disadvantage it caused was it lead to many disagreements between the United States and British North America. This in turn caused the Americans to demand for the treaty to end in 1866 because they believed Canada was the only nation benefiting from this agreement. How Reciprocity lead to Confederation After the end of the Reciprocity Treaty United Canada and the British North American colonies united because of economic reasons, lack of resources and to make sure they did not have to rely much on the Americans.
