10/10/1864 to 10/26/1864
Following up on the earlier meeting at Charlottetown, representatives of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and the Province of Canada gathered in Quebec to thrash out the framework of a possible united Canada. The conference produced seventy-three resolutions that were then submitted to provincial legislatures. This led directly to the London Conference in late 1866 and the British North America Act of 1867. (By John Osborne)
