Fathers of the Confederation

Document(s) 1 - 6 of 298

The Fathers of confederation are the 36 men that took part in one or more of the three conferences held at Charlottetown, Québec and London. From 1864 to 1867, these delegates from British North America met to share their opinions on union and to draft what would become the British North America Act. Ultimately, their work and collaboration forged a new country, and when the time came to find the designation for the country, Sir Samuel Leonard Tilley proposed an idea from the Psalm 72 of the Bible (verse 8): “May he rule from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth”.

This Artefacts Canada featured collection presents multiple artefacts pertaining to the life of the Fathers of confederation and offers a reflection of 19th century Canada.
