Upper Canada Treaties
Upper Canada TreatiesIn the Great Lakes region, more than 30 land cessions were negotiated by agents of the Indian Department and Aboriginal peoples between 1764 and 1862. These land surrenders, mostly one time cash payments with no or few ongoing obligations, permitted the development of southern and eastern Ontario.
After years of conflict in North America between the British and the French, the Treaty of Paris was signed on February 10th 1763. France cede its claim to colonial territories in North America, and Britain’s colonies began estabhishing peaceful relations with the indigenous peoples.
