Summarized from the collection Statutes, treaties and documents of the Canadian constitutiton, 1713-1929, 2nd ed., 1930: The Province of Quebec was created by George III by royal proclamation on 7 Oct. 1763. It was abolished in 1791; in its stead were created the provinces Upper Canada and Lower Canada (Cf. The Constitutional Act 1791 (31 Geo III, c.31)) In 1841 the two provinces were merged under the name Province of Canada. (Cf. The Union Act (3 & 4 Vic., c. 35)) The areas formerly constituting these two provinces continued to be referred to as Upper Canada and Lower Canada, or Canada West and Canada East, respectively. In 1867 the provinces of Canada, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia were united to form the Dominion of Canada. The Province of Canada ceased to exist. The part within the abolished Province of Canada which formerly (1791-1840) constituted the Province of Upper Canada constitutes since 1867 the Province of Ontario; the part which formerly (1791-1840) constituted the Province of Lower Canada, constitutes since 1867 the Province of Quebec. (Cf. The British North America Act 1867 (30 & 31 Vic., c. 3))
