  The Atlas of Canada - Territorial Evolution, 1870
Canada’s long and diversified settlement history is reflected in the two distinct patterns of boundaries that differentiate between eastern and western Canada.
Canada did not become the owner of Rupert's Land until 1870, and the lands were not transferred until 1871.
Its boundaries, in 1870, were the 49th to 50°30' parallels of north latitude, and the 96th to 99th meridians of west longitude.

 AEH: CAN.GROWTH: Immigration and Capital Accumulation in Canada, 1870-1913
During this period, Canada shifted from being a country of net emigration, to one of net immigration, circa 1897, with the prospect of profitable farming in the Prairies.
Using census statistics of population, and estimates of survival rates, fertility rates, and immigrant flow data, the population process for Canada is recreated for the 1861-1913 period.
Model results suggest that up to three-quarters of the increase in the capital formation rate and the foreign capital inflow rate, and all of the increase in the domestic savings rate, in the Canadian economy over 1899-1911, can be attributed to the dramatic inflow of migrants over this period.

 Relations with Canada 1870-1895: Newfoundland and Labrador Heritage

Fearful of American expansionism, the Canadians thought it important that Canada and Newfoundland should maintain a common front against Washington on the linked issues of trade and fisheries.
Canada refused to withdraw its objections to the Bond-Blaine convention.

 The Atlas of Canada - Territorial Evolution, 1874
Ontario's western boundary, which was established in 1870 when the province of Manitoba was created, caused many disputes between Ontario and Manitoba.
In 1874, the Government of Canada set provisional provincial boundaries which extended the territory of Ontario both to the west and to the north.
The Government of Canada set the northern boundary of Ontario at the height of land between the St. Lawrence and Hudson Bay watersheds.

 Canadian Silver Coins 1858-1968
The twenty-cent pieces proved unpopular and were withdrawn from circulation and melted after 1870, when Canada introduced a replacement coin valued at twenty-five cents.
When additional coins were needed in 1870, these were of a slightly different style, perhaps reflecting Canada’s change in status to a Confederation of provinces in 1867.
A simplified version of Canada’s coat of arms was selected for the reverse of the half dollar, and this was prepared by George Kruger-Gray.

 Metis .... one of Canada's Aboriginal people!
That claim is re-affirmed in Canada through the Manitoba Act of 1870; the Dominion Lands Act; and the Canada Act of 1982.
Although the Canadian Government's contempt of the rights of the Metis Nation were demonstrated in 1870 and 1885 in a manner paralleled by events occurring today in Palestine, Kuwait and South Africa; those rights continue to exist as affirmed and defined by recent Supreme Court of Canada decisions.
The Metis should be recognized as Canada's Aboriginal people: they are the only nation of Aboriginal people indigenous to the formation of Canada and are the true spirit of Canada and a huge source of Canadian identity.

 Book Reviews - Family Life and Sociability in Upper and Lower Canada, 1780-1870
Parallels are drawn between families in the Canadas and what American historians of the period refer to as the rise of the "Republican Family." When discussing child rearing, she refers to the Enlightenment and the influence which thinkers such as Locke and Rousseau were having on the view that children could be nurtured.
Considerable emphasis is also placed on the journal of Abraham Joseph, a merchant and member of a well-known Jewish family in Lower Canada.
The conclusion that follows is that class, not other factors, was most influential in shaping family life in the Canadas during the nineteenth century.

Taylor and Baskerville have taken on a more ambitious task by attempting to cover some 350 years of Canadian business history, but their range of references is very good -- and seeks to probe such areas as the role of women entrepreneurs in a helpful way.

 SSRN-Searching for Keynes: With Application to Canada, 1870-2000 by J. Ferris, Stanley Winer
While the model could be adapted to study the fiscal structure of any competitive political system, we look for evidence of attempts at Keynesian stabilization in the policy actions of the Canadian government after 1945.
The study uses consistent budgetary data for 1870 to 2000 constructed by Irwin Gillespie (1991) and updated by the authors.
The White Paper on Employment and Income in 1945 signalled the acceptance of Keynesian ideas in senior policy circles and R.B. Bryce, one of Keynes' early students (who considers 1939 as the date of the first Keynesian budget in Canada), played an important role for many years in the Department of Finance.
