- Compare and Contrast the immigration experiences of European immigrants and Black Slaves during the Great Migration
All citizens of BNA, both those who were already established here and new immigrants, recognized challenges in politics, society, and the economy. They knew and lived these challenges each day, but Britain and those in the colonial government were not interested in addressing the citizens’ grievances. So what were citizens complaining about?
- Guided notes on the key grievances of citizens in Upper and Lower Canada
Today we will begin Unit 4 – BNA from 1815-1850. Events in the previous unit, such as the American Revolution and War of 1812, impacted the development of the British North America colonies.
In Unit 4, we will study how another massive wave of immigration changes the colonies and our own battle to achieve democracy (responsible and representative government).

Less than 40 years after the American Revolution the continent of North America is drawn into war again – the War of 1812. It was a war between America and Britain that impacts and involves BNA as well since we are a colony of Britain.
The Americans describe this war as their “2nd War of Independence” and the British will claim they were victorious, yet in history this war is remembered as “the war nobody won”.
