Welcome back to Jamaican & Canadian History on The Janadian Blog!
Please remember to pay close attention to dates as they will be important to future posts. According to the Canadian Encyclopedia, on January 1st, 1790 ...
The Imperial Statute of 1790 effectively allowed settlers to bring enslaved persons to Upper Canada. Under the statute, the enslaved had only to be fed and clothed. Any child born of enslaved parents became free at age 25 and anyone who released someone from bondage had to ensure that he/she could be financially independent.
