Canada West

Canada West was the western portion of the Province of Canada. It consisted of the southern part of the modern-day Canadian province of Ontario.

Formerly a colony called Upper Canada, it was merged with Lower Canada (present-day Quebec) to create the unified Province of Canada in 1840 based on Lord Durham's Report on the Affairs of British North America (1839). The merger paved the way for Canadian Confederation in 1867.
