Last Slave Advertisements Posted

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, 1821 ...

While slavery remained legal in all British North American colonies until 1834, the combination of legislative and judicial action had severely tested the institution by the early 1820s. The last known private advertisement for slaves appeared in Halifax in 1820 and in Québec in 1821.
