Nova Scotia did join Confederation. In fact, Nova Scotia was one of the four original provinces of Confederation.

If nova scotia were to not join confederation then hitler would be revived and start commanding an army of dragons to set everything on fire and hire terrorists and bomb experts to blow up the world.
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 first four colonies to join confederation were Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Canada East and Canada West.
Nova scotia join Canada on 1897
Nova Scotia didn't want to join Confederation because... 1. Nova Scotia was already a fine self governing colony; which was at the time trying to get the Queen to allow them to leave the Canadian Confederation and join with the United States. 2. They knew that with the small population that they wouldn't have enough power in Canada. (The only provinces that really pass bills in Canada are Quebec and Ontario).
The reason Nova Scotia joined Canadian Confederation (and didn't join the American Declaration of Independence in 1776) was because of the Citadel in the middle of the town (which was under British Rule)... If Nova Scotia joined the U.S. Declaration of Independence, it would've most likely ended British Rule in North America (I.E. we'd be part of the states). But, we were close...
They wanted a railroad, boats to be built and farms made. They were also scared of Fenian raids.
Why indeed. The American invasion feared did not occur, Canada eventually took Nova Scotia into a Free Trade agreement with the USA they did not want and their resources were no better protected in Confederation than out. So from a 19th century view they should join to avoid bad stuff happening but from a 21st century view it is not clear if they should remain.
The first four provinces to join as a confederation were Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario in 1867.
Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. ======================= Ontario and Québec did not "join" Confederation. Three provinces joined together in Confederation to create Canada. They were: Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the pre-Confederation Province of Canada. Upon Confederation, the Province of Canada was severed into the Province of Québec and the Province of Ontario. See sections 3 and 6 of the British North America Act (now the Constitution Act).

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 seventh province to join confederation was British Columbia.

PEI didn't join the confederation because they didnt have enough money to create a railroad.
Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia
some people in British Columbia supported the idea because they wanted more control over their government. British Columbia had the advantage that if they would join the confederation the Canadian government would make them a railway from Nova Scotia to British Columbia
Only three provinces joined together, but once they did so there were four provinces. Confused?? The three provinces that joined in Confederation were Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the pre-Confederation Province of Canada. Upon Confederation, the Province of Canada was severed into the provinces of Québec and Ontario.
they joined together in July 1, 1867
advantages - They would have a railway to help them -They would have a stronger defense because they can get reinforcements from other provinces -The free trade had ended in the U.S. and they could trade within canada NOT MANY DISADVANTAGES, TRUST ME
Canada East was not a political entity. It was part of the pre-Confederation Province of Canada. The Province of Canada was one of the three colonies that joined to create Canada, the first country to be created by legislation. The other two colonies were Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Confederation occurred on July 1, 1867. Immediately upon Confederation, the Province of Canada was severed into the Provinces of Ontario and Québec.

PEI didn't join Confederation in 1867 because, at first, they were upset that Charlottetown was not chosen to be the capital of Canada. They thought that it should, since the Charlottetown Conference was there. Another reason was because they had such a small population, which made them think they would be swamped in the union. Since they had such a small population, they did NOT want representation by population. If the Confederation were to happen… Read More

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.

Therefore, Manitoba did not "join" Canada. The three provinces that originally joined together on July 1… Read More
Canada was the first country to be created by legislation.

Upon Confederation, the pre-Confederation Province of Canada was severed into the Provinces of Québec and Ontario (see section 6). Therefore, although it is correct to say that Québec was one of Canada's four original provinces, it is… Read More
The confederation league had been pressuring colony of British Columbia to join Canada which was carved out of union of province of Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick in 1867. The final decision to join was influenced by a heavy debt as a result of growing population, fear of annexation to USA and slump in economy post the gold rush. The union assured to assume BC's loans and so the province joined in 1871

The theory was that the province was very good so they said hey why not join we can concore the united states of America and they accepted all of the people that they could get and that's how the us army was made the end
Newfoundland didn't join confederation in 1867 because they were wealthy from their fishing and lumber industry. But in the 1930's during the great depression the world cut back on trade and Newfoundland could no longer afford to pay for its hospitals, schools and other services therefore that is why Newfoundland joined confederation.
Ontario did not "join" Confederation. Ontario did not exist as a political entity until Confederation occurred.
Newfoundland and Labrador was the last province to join Confederation in 1949
