When did Canada east and west join confederation?
The independent Eastern Canadian colonies of Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia chose to become Canada in 1867. PEI and Newfoundland joined later on. In 1870 the UK transferred ownership of the mostly uncolonized land known as Rupert's Land to Canada from the Hudson's bay company. After this, war's were fought to subjugate the mixed European and native Metis peopled societies that had emerged in Rupert's land unofficially, and a compromise regarding this led to the emergence of Manitoba and later around the turn of the century Alberta and Saskatchewan were settled by Europeans and Eastern Canadians, so they were always part of Canada and didn't have to join the federation. BC joined in 1871 of its own accord.
because the political deadlock was making it impossible to do anything in Canada east and Canada west. ================================================================ Technically, Canada East did not join Confederation. Canada East and Canada West were merely geographical designations, not political entities. The pre-Confederation Province of Canada was the political entity that joined Confederation. Immediately upon Confederation, the Province of Canada was divided into the Province of Québec and the Province of Ontario.
the first four colonies to join confederation were Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Canada East and Canada West.
As a guess, confederation happened at the last conference, the London conference, on 1867.At that time only four provinces joined - *Canada East, *Canada West, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. At the second Conference which was the Quebec Conference. Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland didn't want to join Confederation. Canada East - Quebec \ Canada East and Canada West were called the United Provinces of Canada in 1841 Canada West- Ontario /
Many great Canadians wanted Confederation. For Canada West (Ontario) George Brown and John .A. Mcdonald led them to Confederation. For Canada East (Quebec) George Cartier led them. Nova Scotia was led by Charles Tupper. New Brunswick was led by Leonard Tilley. They were the 1st 4 provinces to join confederation. PEI and Newfoundland did not want to join. Newfoundland was the last to join in 1949.
Canada east and Canada west were the two divisions of the province of Canada for the Act of Union until confederation. Canada East is now Quebec, and Canada west is Ontario now.
New Brunswick, along with Canada West (Ontario), Canada East (Quebec), and Nova Scotia, joined altogether in the year 1867 to form the Dominion of Canada.
Canada East and Canada West were not "created." They were merely geographical designations within the pre-Confederation Province of Canada.
If canada west were to join confederation, they would have to carry the burden of other colonies. Also Canada west has mostly english speaking people while some of the others have french speaking people. If the colonies join together, then there may be conflicts among themselves
They joined confederation because they were have a political deadlock with Canada West MUHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
Canada east and Canada west had the same number of seats in legislative assembly so all the people from Canada west voted for one thing but all the people from Canada east voted for another thing. They weren't getting anything done so they decided to join together and have a federal government. :-)
Canada West didn't join confederation. It was the name given to what had been Upper Canada before it joined with Lower Canada to become the Province of Canada. This united province then confederated with Nova Scotia and New Brunswick in 1867 and was split into Ontario and Quebec. One of the reasons Canada sought confederation with its neighbouring colonies was to resolve its own political deadlock between the primarily English Canada West and the primarily… Read More
New Brunswick, Nova, Scotia , Canada East, Canada West.
because they knew that they would not get equal rights! such as their language and their culture, canada west allowed them to keep all their culture in order to have quebec as a canadian province. east knew that canada would not form without them, so they knew they could get whatever they wanted
Canada West didn't "join" Canada. Canada West and Canada East were two different colonies, one being French and the other British. The two were ordered to combine, and thus a singular "Canada" was made.
There was no political entity known as "west Canada" at the time of Confederation. If you are referring to "Canada West," it was a term used to describe a geographical area within the pre-Confederation Province of Canada. If you are referring to what is known today as "Western Canada," provision was made in section 146 of the British North America Act for Rupert's Land, the North-western Territory, and the colony of British Columbia to enter… Read More
Canada West was never a separate political entity. The term was used to designate the area that used to be the colony of Upper Canada, i.e., the western part of the pre-Confederation Province of Canada. The Province of Canada joined Confederation on July 1, 1867, and was simultaneously divided into the Province of Ontario and the Province of Québec.
When Canada East and Canada West had equal seats in the assembly, they both voted for different things and no laws could be passed to achieve confederation.
Mabey because Canada West and East would have the government there and control everything. New Brunswick did not want to join Confederation because the central government were paying each colony a subsidy, depending on the colony's population. However, each person in New Brunswick were 80 cents each, so that's why they did not want to join.
Most West Canadiens were against the confederation for many reasons. A plan to build a railway over canada and their taxes being sent to Canada East
The terms Canada East and Canada West have not been used since July 1, 1867. The pre-Confederation colony known as the Province of Canada existed from February 10, 1841 to July 1, 1867. Canada East and Canada West were not political entities. They were geographical descriptions within the Province of Canada. They corresponded to the late colonies of Lower Canada and Upper Canada.
Canada East and Canada West were already part of a political union, the Province of Canada, before Confederation, so they wouldn't have seen each other as joining Confederation. In the Province of Canada, Confederation was seen as a solution to a domestic issue. The Parliament of Canada was ineffective because a double majority of MPs from Canada West and Canada East was needed in order to pass legislation. Governments were fragile and short lived political… Read More
The West Canadians were against the confederation of Canada for many reasons. For one, a plan was formed to build a railway across Canada. This would cost a grand amount of money. They were also against the confederation because of taxes being sent away to the Eastern parts of Canada. Canada West is the term used to describe Upper Canada after unification of Upper and Lower Canada into the Province of Canada. After confederation they… Read More
It was one condition for British Columbia to join Confederation and it was important to history because it linked the east and the west.
PEI did not enter Confederation with the other Canadian provinces in 1867 (Canada East and Canada West, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia) mainly because it was scared of not being represented fairly. The local government on the island was afraid (due to the very popular rep. by pop. system) that it would have no say if it were part of Canada as a whole. PEI did not join confederation until July 1st, 1873. * **… Read More
Your question is very unspecific. BC required a railway, but much of the Prairies were HBC lands that were signed over to the crown and eventually divided into provinces in 1905. A much smaller Manitoba under the leadership of Louis Riel was the only other western area that joined confederation in a manner similar to the Eastern provinces. Ask a more precise question. ------------- Canada West is not the same as Western Canada. Canada West… Read More
Manitoba did not 'join' Confederation. On July 15, 1871, the North West Territories (a.k.a. Rupert's Land) was acquired by Canada from Britain. On the same date, the Province of Manitoba was created out of the North West Territories. British Columbia was the first province to 'join' Confederation, thereby becoming the sixth province. That was on July 20, 1871.

Canada West and Canada East offered a railway to link Nova Scotia to the mainland. They promised money for bridges, roads, and other development.
"Canada West" was not a political entity. It was part of the pre-Confederation Province of Canada. "Canada West" was a geographical name that was applied to the territory of the former colony of Upper Canada between February 10, 1841, and July 1, 1867, i.e., between the the Act of Union and Confederation.
To protect their exposed Western and Northern borders. If Canada had not taken that land the USA would have and the purpose of Confederation was to keep the USA at bay. This is why Canada used such extreme force in response to Western Discontent at not being consulted as to who their new leaders would be.
Strictly speaking, no, the united Province of Canada was split to form the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Québec at confederation. However, the Province of Canada included the old Canada West and the old Canada East, which were to become the new provinces. Nova Scotia and New Brunswick were there before confederation.
The inhabitants sought confederation with Canada East in order to secure the unified government. · Without railway connections by which they could help each other and without a plan for common action the divided provinces were in a most dangerous position. · The Americans were threatening to attack and (see above) · The coalition year of 1864 was when Brown joined with Macdonald and Cartier and agreed that if the two provinces (east and west)… Read More
It first started as "British North America", under the rule of Britian, it was made up of "colonies", such as British Columbia. However, on 1867, Canada East, Canada West, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick decided to join together to form the "Dominion of Canada". The best term used now is "Confederation", which means the joining of several colonies to create a single nation with a central government.
Canada East is a historic name for what is now southern Quebec, including Quebec City and Montreal. In 1841, the British Colonial administration renamed the former Lower Canada (now Quebec) and Upper Canada (now Ontario) Canada East and Canada West as part of a series of governmental reforms brought on largely by the Rebellions of 1837-38. The names were changed to Ontario and Quebec when Canada West and Canada East joined Nova Scotia and New… Read More
Why have different understandings of the past caused conflict in Canada today and how could this have been prevented?
Conflict in Canada is mostly restricted to debates and heated arguments so are not much of a real problem. Canada is a confederation of many different Nations, each with many different cultures and each with their own history. So it is expected that they wll have different understanding of the past. The conflict comes from the inequities of treatment in todays Confederation.. For example most Canadians live in Ontario and West of Ontario than live… Read More
The Northwest Territories joined Confederation because they felt like joining.
320 miles taking this route: Take TRANS-CANADA ROUTE 1 - WEST (towards the CONFEDERATION BRIDGE), from Charlottetown, to the CONFEDERATION BRIDGE (toll) to NEW BRUNSWICK.

East Canada and West Canada of the Province of Canada was divided along religion and language with English dominating in West Canada and French in East Canada.
The capital of Canada is Ottawa, which is in the East.
they joined confederation because they were promised a railroad from nova scotia through to canada west....they would get extra defense from the other province....since america just stopped free trade theyd be able to trade with the other colonies....nova scotia was totally for confederation
The two Canadas wanted to attend the Charlottetown Conference because they thought it was a good opportunity to convince the Maritimes ( Atlantic Canada) to join their larger union.
Canada East :)
Canada west will worry about the U.N putting heavy tariffs on products.
Canada is east of Russia and west of Iceland. It is north of the lower 48 United States.
Well your question is a little hard to answer, because western Canada is made up of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia. They all joined confederation at different times and for different reasons, but I think the main reason was the promise of a railway to join Western Canada to Eastern Canada.
Canada West did not want to become a part of the USA.
Canada West was Canada, it did not have to join. It was part of the United Province of Canada. Western Canada was purchased by Canada, it, the inhabitants, had no say in joining. Even less after Canadian troops were sent in to make the pro's very clear.
Canada East and Canada West were the former Lower Canada and Upper Canada respectively. Lower Canada and Upper Canada were united into the Province of Canada in 1841 by the British Parliament. The terms Canada East and Canada West were terms of description, not names of separate entities.
The government kept changing in Canada east and west, it was hard to make big decisions. they decided to create a new country called Canada, to solve these issues. When the Americans had a war over slavery, the british helped those who were for slavery, but when the people against slavery won, the province of Canada was afraid they would get attacked because they were a british colony, but if they were a separate country… Read More
