Ontario did not "join" Canada. Ontario did not exist prior to Confederation. Ontario was one of the original four provinces of Canada.

Wrong. First, Ontario did not exist as such until Confederation. Second, that part of the Province of Canada which had formerly been Upper Canada (and which formed the basis of today's Ontario) had the most to gain from Confederation and was the strongest supporter of Confederation. Third, although all provinces have benefited from Confederation, it is probably fair to say that Ontario has benefited the most from Confederation.


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.


The Province of Canada was one of the original provinces (along with Nova Scotia and New Brunswick) that confederated in 1867. On entrance, the Province of Canada was split into Ontario and Quebec.


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.

Ontario did not exist as a separate entity prior to Confederation. Three colonies joined together to create Canada. They were Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the pre-Confederation Province of Canada. Upon Confederation (July 1, 1867) the Province of Canada was severed into the Provinces of Québec and Ontario.

Since they have yet to accept the Canadian Constitution some would say they have not joined, but they were in right from the start, 1867. They along with Ontario were Canada so one could say other provinces joined their Confederation.


Manitoba was the 5th province to join Canada. ================================= While Manitoba was the fifth province to "enter Confederation," it was not the fifth province to "join" Canada. To "join" indicates that two prior existing bodies became one. Manitoba did not exist until the Government of Canada created it as a province out of Northwest Territories on July 15, 1870. Therefore, Manitoba did not "join" Canada. The three provinces that originally joined together on July 1, 1867, to create Canada were Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the pre-Confederation Province of Canada. Upon Confederation, the pre-Confederation Province of Canada was severed into the Provinces of Québec and Ontario, but likewise Québec and Ontario did not "join" Canada. The colony of British Columbia was the fourth province to "join" Canada (July 20, 1871) and the fifth province to "join" was Prince Edward Island (July 1, 1873).
