Province of Canada

Note: for information about Canada's present-day provinces and territories, see Canadian provinces and territories.

The Province of Canada was a British colony in North America, created by the fusion of the Canadas into one province. The former Lower Canada became known Canada East and Upper Canada as Canada West. The Province of Canada ceased to exist upon Confederation (1867), when it joined with the colonies of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia to form the Dominion of Canada. At that point, the Province of Canada redivided into the provinces of Ontario and Quebec.
