The Beginning and Foundation of Democracy
During the period, democratic institutions also started to develop worldwide. Nova Scotia has its first representative assembly (composed of duly elected representatives) in 1758. It was situated in Halifax. The earliest followers of such democratic institutions in Canada included Edward Island (1773) and New Brunswick (1785).
Following the passing of the Constitutional Act (1791) of Canada, Quebec was divided into lower Canada (having French-speaking and catholic people) and Upper Canada (having English-speaking protestants). The name Canada was made official. The people of Canada got their provincial legislative assembly at this time for the elected representative. The term “British North America” now signified two Canadas as well as all the Atlantic colonies.
