Bruce County is a county in Southwestern Ontario, Canada comprising eight lower-tier municipalities and with a 2016 population of 66,491. It is named for James Bruce, 8th Earl of Elgin and 12th Earl of Kincardine, sixth Governor General of the Province of Canada; the Bruce name is linked to the Bruce Trail and the Bruce Peninsula. It has three distinct areas; the Peninsula is part of the Niagara Escarpment and is known for its views, rock formations and hiking trails. The Lakeshore includes nearly a hundred kilometers of soft sandy beaches; the Interior Region has a strong history in farming. Bruce County comprises eight municipalities: Two First Nation communities are included within the Bruce census division, but are separate from the county administration: Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation Saugeen First Nation The territory of the County arose from various surrenders of First Nations lands: The Queen's Bush, coming from the 1836 Saugeen Tract Agreement The cession of the Indian Strip in 1851, for a road between Owen Sound and Southampton The Saugeen Surrenders of 1854, which transferred the Bruce Peninsula to the Crown Huron County was organized in the Huron District in 1845, the District itself was abolished at the beginning of 1850.
Legislation passed in the same session of the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Canada provided instead for it to be reconstituted as the United Counties of Huron and Bruce, with the territory of the Bruce Peninsula withdrawn and annexed to Waterloo County. The Bruce Peninsula was withdrawn from Waterloo and transferred to Bruce in 1851; the County of Perth was given its own Provisional Municipal Council at that time, was separated from the United Counties in 1853. In 1849, the Huron District Council united the area of the county with the United Townships of Wawanosh and Ashfield as a single municipality, which lasted until 1851 when Wawanosh and Ashfield were withdrawn; the area became known as the "United Townships in the County of Bruce", which lasted until its division into municipalities in 1854. A Provisional Municipal Council was established for Bruce County at the beginning of 1857, Walkerton was proclaimed as the county seat, in preference to Kincardine, but local opposition forced the proclamation to be deferred until each town and village had presented a case for its selection.
A subsequent proclamation confirmed Walkerton's selection. In 1863, the provisional council promoted a bill in the Legislative Assembly to divide the county into the counties of Bruce and Wallace, but it only went as far as second reading and did not proceed further; the provisional council asked for legislation to provide for a referendum as to whether Walkerton, Kincardine or another place would be the most acceptable choice. The referendum was held in September 1864, Paisley received a plurality of the votes. In early 1865, the provisional council asked for legislation to confirm the result, but changed its mind in the year in favour of Walkerton. Confirming legislation was passed in 1866 to provide for the dissolution of the United Counties on January 1, 1867, with Huron and Bruce becoming separate counties for all purposes. Bruce County had a population of 68,147 based on the 2016 Canada census, representing a 3.1% growth since the 2011 census, lower than the provincial average of 4.6%.
Residents of Bruce County are poorer than the Ontario average. As of 2016, the median age of Bruce County is 48.5 years, much older than the Ontario median of 41.3. The median household income was $71,193, lower than the provincial average of $74,287. Bruce County has no visible minorities, representing only 3% of the population compared to the provincial average of 29%, but has a high aboriginal population representing 6% of the population, higher than the provincial average of 4%. Bruce County is overwhelmingly English speaking, with 92% of the population having English as their mother tongue, but has a German speaking population consisting of 3%; the County of Bruce is governed by a council consisting of a warden and mayors of the area municipalities. County council meetings are held in the Bruce County Administration building in Ontario; the function of the Business to Bruce Program is to support business development, business recruitment and business enhancement. This program focuses on "inspiring and supporting business owners and entrepreneurs by engaging and mobilizing the local business communities and municipalities while using County level resources to give the project reach and scale".

Peterborough County is located in Southern Ontario, Canada. The county seat is Peterborough, independent of the county; the southern section of the county is mix of agriculture and lakefront properties. The northern section of the county is sparsely populated wilderness with numerous rivers and lakes within the expanded Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park; the County contains the Lang Pioneer Village, the Kawarthas are a major tourist region. The area was part of the Newcastle District, formed in 1802. In 1841, the northern part of the District was detached to form the Colborne District, consisting of the County of Peterborough, it consisted of the following territory: The county was named in honor of Col. Peter Robinson, who in 1825 brought 2,000 settlers from Ireland; the route taken was by way of Port Hope, Rice Lake and the Otonabee River, the same route used by the first settlers that entered this region in 1818. The centre of the County was the courthouse, still considered an important historical site.
In 1851, Peterborough County was divided into the counties of Peterborough and Victoria, which were united for municipal purposes as the United Counties of Peterborough and Victoria. A plebiscite was authorized in 1856 to facilitate the creation of a provisional county council for Victoria, but, as the united counties council delayed conducting it, a further Act was passed in 1861 to compel its being held, following which the provisional council was formed, and its formal separation took place in 1863. Further townships were surveyed. In 1874, the townships of Bruton, Dysart, Glamorgan, Harburn, Minden, Monmouth and Stanhope were withdrawn from the County and transferred to the new Provisional County of Haliburton. After the transfer of the northern townships to Haliburton, the remainder of the County consisted of the following: The Town of Peterborough became a City in 1905, was subsequently withdrawn from the County for municipal purposes. In 1974, as a result of the creation of the Regional Municipality of Durham, the township of Cavan and the village of Millbrook were withdrawn from Durham County, the township of South Monaghan was withdrawn from Northumberland County, to be transferred to Peterborough County.
As a consequence of the Common Sense Revolution in Ontario, the County was restructured into the following municipalities during the period 1997-2004: Township of Asphodel-Norwood Township of Cavan-Monaghan Township of Douro-Dummer Township of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen Township of North Kawartha Township of Otonabee-South Monaghan Township of Selwyn Municipality of Trent LakesTwo First Nations reserves are independent of county administration: Curve Lake First Nation 35 Hiawatha First Nation The figures below are for the Peterborough census division, which combines Peterborough County, the City of Peterborough and the two First Nations reserves.

Clergy Reserves were tracts of land in Upper Canada and Lower Canada reserved for the support of "Protestant clergy" by the Constitutional Act of 1791. One-seventh of all surveyed Crown lands were set aside, totalling 2,395,687 acres and 934,052 acres for each Province, provision was made to dedicate some of those reserved lands as glebe land in support of any parsonage or rectory that may be established by the Church of England; the provincial legislatures could vary or repeal these provisions, but royal assent could not be given prior to such passed bills having been laid before both houses of the British Parliament for at least thirty days. The first lieutenant governor of Upper Canada, John Graves Simcoe, interpreted "Protestant clergy" to mean the clergy of Church of England only. However, in 1823 the Law Officers of the Crown held that the Church of Scotland was entitled to a share of the revenues under the 1791 Act. Although Lt-Governor Maitland attempted to suppress the publication of that decision, the Legislature passed resolutions the following year that recognized that church's status.
Complications in establishing leasing procedures prevented the reserve lands from being leased before 1803. Until 1819, the reserve lands were managed by the Province, in most years they earned revenues that were sufficient to cover their expenses. After the Rev. John Strachan was appointed to the Executive Council of Upper Canada in 1815, he began to push for the Church of England's autonomous control of the clergy reserves on the model of the Clergy Corporation of Lower Canada, created in 1817; the Clergy Corporation, of which Strachan became the chairman, was subsequently incorporated in 1819 to manage the Clergy Reserves. The 1819 charter provided for the Bishop of Quebec to become the perpetual Principal and Director, with twelve other directors, constituted the Board; the Bishop's Official and the rectors of Niagara and York could each serve as acting chairman. Other perpetual directors were: the incumbents at Kingston, York, Grimsby and Hamilton. Any two directors, together with the Principal or an acting chairman, constituted a quorum, because of the poor network of roads, most clergy members were unable to attend Corporation meetings.
This meant that Strachan, together with the Inspector General and Surveyor General, controlled the Board. These three members were part of the Family Compact; the reserves were allotted in lots of 200 acres intermixed with other lots sold to individuals within each surveyed township. Except in the Talbot Settlement, they were arranged in a checkerboard pattern within each township, were a serious obstacle to economic development as they were wasteland, either being abandoned by lessees after the timber had been harvested, or unattractive because of the availability of cheap freehold land; this was recognized by the Legislative Assembly in 1817 when it passed resolutions that condemned the lands as "insurmountable obstacles" and called on the Parliament in Westminster to authorize their sale. Until 1827, no reserve lands were sold, they were leased for terms of twenty-one years, with rents on a sliding scale: Even with higher rates being charged from 1819, total annual revenues were still only £1200 in 1824, only one-third could be collected without pursuing legal action.
In 1826, the Canada Company was formed to sell off the remaining crown and clergy reserves in the province. However, because of opposition from Strachan, the Company received 1,100,000 acres in the Huron Tract, in substitution for the contemplated 829,430 acres of clergy reserve lands; as the provincial policy of free land grants had come to an end, Strachan lobbied for and secured an Act from the British Parliament granting authority to sell up to one-fourth of all reserve lands, up to 100,000 acres each year, from which there would be income sufficient to support 200–300 Anglican clergymen. In 1836, before Sir John Colborne was succeeded by Sir Francis Bond Head as lieutenant-governor, he created 57 rectories for the Church of England, with glebe land totalling 21,057 acres; this action created significant political dissent, was subsequently declared illegal in 1837, but was held in 1856 to have been lawful. In the interim, it became one of the issues in the Upper Canada Rebellion of 1837, where William Lyon Mackenzie exclaimed to the crowd outside Montgomery's Tavern: The Legislative Assembly of Upper Canada passed a law to sell the reserves in 1840, but it was disallowed and displaced by an Imperial Act passed in that year.
Although considered to be more favourable to the Church of England, the Act as passed provided that only one-half of future sales would be dedicated on a 2:1 basis to the Churches of England and Scotland, with the remaining half being distributed to all other churches according to their respective strengths. The administration of the reserve lands was transferred to the Crown Lands Department, where it was handled in a more professional manner. Unlike the distribution of lots, pursued by Simcoe in Upper Canada, Alured Clarke, lieutenant-governor of Lower Canada, instituted a policy of setting aside large blocks of land apart from either current or contiguous settlement; the Clergy Corporation in Lower Canada, more formally known as th
Province of Canada
The Province of Canada was a British colony in North America from 1841 to 1867. Its formation reflected recommendations made by John Lambton, 1st Earl of Durham in the Report on the Affairs of British North America following the Rebellions of 1837–1838; the Act of Union 1840, passed on 23 July 1840 by the British Parliament and proclaimed by the Crown on 10 February 1841, merged the Colonies of Upper Canada and Lower Canada by abolishing their separate parliaments and replacing them with a single one with two houses, a Legislative Council as the upper chamber and the Legislative Assembly as the lower chamber. In the aftermath of the Rebellions of 1837–1838, unification of the two Canadas was driven by two factors. Firstly, Upper Canada was near bankruptcy because it lacked stable tax revenues, needed the resources of the more populous Lower Canada to fund its internal transportation improvements. Secondly, unification was an attempt to swamp the French vote by giving each of the former provinces the same number of parliamentary seats, despite the larger population of Lower Canada.
Although Durham's report had called for the Union of the Canadas and for responsible government, only the first of the two recommendations was implemented in 1841. For the first seven years, the government was led by an appointed governor general accountable only to the British Crown and the Queen's Ministers. Responsible government was not to be achieved until the second LaFontaine–Baldwin ministry in 1849, when Governor General James Bruce, 8th Earl of Elgin agreed to request a cabinet be formed on the basis of party making the elected premier the head of the government and reducing the Governor General to a more symbolic role; the Province of Canada ceased to exist at Canadian Confederation on 1 July 1867, when it was divided into the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec. Ontario included the area occupied by the pre-1841 British colony of Upper Canada, while Quebec included the area occupied by the pre-1841 British colony of Lower Canada. Upper Canada was English-speaking, whereas Lower Canada was French-speaking.
The Province of Canada was divided into two parts: Canada West. Canada East was what became of the former colony of Lower Canada after being united into the Province of Canada, it became the province of Quebec after Confederation. Canada West was what became of the former colony of Upper Canada after being united into the Province of Canada, it became the province of Ontario after Confederation. The location of the capital city of the Province of Canada changed six times in its 26-year history; the first capital was in Kingston. The capital moved to Montreal until rioters, spurred by a series of incendiary articles published in The Gazette, protested against the Rebellion Losses Bill and burned down Montreal's parliament buildings, it moved to Toronto. It moved to Quebec City from 1852 to 1856 Toronto for one year before returning to Quebec City from 1859 to 1866. In 1857, Queen Victoria chose Ottawa as the permanent capital of the Province of Canada, initiating construction of Canada's first parliament buildings, on Parliament Hill.
The first stage of this construction was completed in 1865, just in time to host the final session of the last parliament of the Province of Canada before Confederation. The Governor General remained the head of the civil administration of the colony, appointed by the British government, responsible to it, not to the local legislature, he was aided by the Legislative Council. The Executive Council aided in administration, the Legislative Council reviewed legislation produced by the elected Legislative Assembly. Sydenham came from a wealthy family of timber merchants, was an expert in finance, having served on the English Board of Trade which regulated banking, he was promised a barony if he could implement the union of the Canadas, introduce a new form of municipal government, the District Council. The aim of both exercises in state-building was to strengthen the power of the Governor General, to minimise the impact of the numerically superior French vote, to build a "middle party" that answered to him, rather than the Family Compact or the Reformers.
Sydenham was a Whig who believed in rational government, not "responsible government". To implement his plan, he used widespread electoral violence through the Orange Order, his efforts to prevent the election of Louis LaFontaine, the leader of the French reformers, were foiled by David Willson, the leader of the Children of Peace, who convinced the electors of the 4th Riding of York to transcend linguistic prejudice and elect LaFontaine in an English-speaking riding in Canada West. Bagot was appointed after the unexpected death of Thomson, with the explicit instructions to resist calls for responsible government, he arrived in the capital, Kingston, to find that Thomson's "middle party" had become polarised and he therefore could not form an executive. The Tories informed Bagot he could not form a cabinet without including LaFontaine and the French Party. LaFontaine demanded four cabinet seats, including one for Robert Baldwin. Bagot became ill thereafter, Baldwin and Lafontaine became the first real premiers of the Province of Canada.
However, to take office as ministers, the two had to run for re-election. While LaFontaine was re-elected in 4th York, Baldwin lost his seat in Hastings as a result of Orange Order violence, it was now that the pact between the two men was completel
History of Ontario
The History of Ontario covers the period from the arrival of Paleo-Indians thousands of years ago to the present day. The lands that make up present-day Ontario, the most populous province of Canada as of the early 21st century have been inhabited for millennia by groups of Aboriginal people, with French and British exploration and colonization commencing in the 17th century. Before the arrival of Europeans, the region was inhabited both by Iroquoian tribes. French explorer Étienne Brûlé surveyed part of the area in 1610–12; the English explorer Henry Hudson sailed into Hudson Bay in 1611 and claimed the area for England, but Samuel de Champlain reached Lake Huron in 1615. French Jesuit missionaries began to establish posts along the Great Lakes, forging alliances in particular with the Huron people. Permanent French settlement was hampered by their hostilities with the Five Nations of the Iroquois, who became allied with the British. By the early 1650s, using both British and Dutch arms, they had succeeded in pushing other related Iroquoian-speaking peoples, the Petun and Neutral Nation, out of or to the fringes of territorial southern Ontario.
In 1747 a small number of French settlers established the oldest continually inhabited European community in what became western Ontario. The British established trading posts on Hudson Bay in the late 17th century and began a struggle for domination of Ontario. With their victory in the Seven Years' War, the 1763 Treaty of Paris awarded nearly all of France's North American possessions to Britain; the region was annexed to Quebec in 1774. The first European settlements were in 1782–1784, when 5,000 American loyalists entered what is now Ontario following the American Revolution. From 1783 to 1796, Britain granted individuals 200 acres of land per household and other items as compensation for their losses in the Thirteen Colonies and a start for rebuilding their lives; this resettlement increased the European population of Canada west of the St. Lawrence-Ottawa River confluence during this period; the Constitutional Act of 1791 recognized this development, as it split Quebec into The Canadas: Lower Canada east of the St. Lawrence-Ottawa River confluence, the area of earliest settlement.
John Graves Simcoe was appointed Upper Canada's first Lieutenant-Governor in 1793. American troops in the War of 1812 invaded Upper Canada across the Niagara River and the Detroit River but were defeated and pushed back by British forces, local militia and allied Native American forces; the Americans gained control of Lake Erie at the Battle of Lake Erie. The British had to flee on foot, the American William Henry Harrison caught up and decisively defeated them at the Battle of the Thames; the Americans killed Tecumseh, leader of the anti-American First Nations military force, which permanently disrupted the military alliance between Britain and the Indians. During the Battle of York, Americans occupied the Town of York in 1813. After losing their general Zebulon Pike and having a difficult time holding the town, the departing American soldiers burned it to the ground. After the War of 1812, relative stability attracted increasing numbers of immigrants from Britain and Ireland rather than from the United States.
Colonial leaders encouraged this new immigration. However, many arriving newcomers from Europe found frontier life difficult, some of those with the means returned home or went south, but population growth far exceeded emigration from this area in the following decades. Canal projects and a new network of plank roads spurred greater trade within the colony and with the United States, thereby improving relations over time. Ontario's numerous waterways aided travel and transportation into the interior and supplied water power for development. Canals were capital-intensive infrastructure projects; the Oswego Canal, built in New York 1825–1829, was a vital commercial link in the Great Lakes–Atlantic seaway. It was connected to Ontario's Welland Canal in 1829; the newly fashioned Oswego–Welland line offered an alternate route to the St. Lawrence River and Europe, as opposed to the Erie Canal, which connected the Great Lakes to New York City via the Mohawk and Hudson rivers. In the absence of a hereditary aristocracy, Upper Canada was run by an oligarchy or closed group of powerful men who controlled most of the political and economic power from the 1810s to the 1830s.
Opponents called it the "Family Compact". In the religious sphere, a key leader was the Anglican bishop of Toronto. Strachan was opposed by Methodist leader Egerton Ryerson; the Family Compact consisted of English gentry who arrived before 1800, the sons of United Empire Loyalists, who were exiles who fled the American revolution. The term "family" was metaphorical, for they were not related by blood or marriage. There were no elections and the leadership controlled appointments, so local officials were allies of the leaders; the Family Compact looked to Britain for the ideal model of society, where landed aristocrats held power. The Family Compact was noted for its conservatism and opposition to democracy the rowdy United States version, they developed the theme that they and their militia had defeated American attempts to annex Canada in the War of 1812. They were based in Toronto, were integrated with the bankers and financie
Prince Edward County, Ontario
Prince Edward County is a single-tier municipality and a census division of the Canadian province of Ontario. Long settled by Indigenous peoples, the county has significant archeological sites; these include the LeVescounte Mounds of the Point Peninsula Complex people, built about 2000 years ago. The county was created by Upper Canada's founding lieutenant-governor John Graves Simcoe on July 16, 1792, it was named after Prince Edward Augustus, Duke of Kent, commander-in-chief of British North America. Shortly after the American Revolution, the Crown made land grants to some of the earliest United Empire Loyalists to encourage their settlements in Ontario and provide compensation for property lost in the Thirteen Colonies; the county was composed of three townships named in honour of three of George III's daughters. For many years Prince Edward County has been associated with the wholly mainland Hastings County, its longtime militia unit has been The Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment, whose most famous member was Farley Mowat.
This noted nature author wrote And No Birds Sang, about his experiences with the Hasty Ps during the Second World War's Italian Campaign. On January 1, 1998, the Town of Picton, the villages of Bloomfield and Wellington, the townships of Ameliasburgh, Hallowell, North Marysburgh and South Marysburgh amalgamated to form a new city with the official legal name of Prince Edward County; each of the former municipalities is now a ward. The following are former municipalities: Ameliasburgh, named after Princess Amelia, youngest daughter of George III Athol Bloomfield Hallowell, named after Captain Benjamin Hallowell ), eminent Loyalist of Boston, he was the father-in-law of Chief Justice John Elmsley. Hillier, organized in 1823, named after Major George Hillier, military secretary to Sir Peregrine Maitland. North Marysburgh, surveyed in 1785 and settled by Loyalist veterans, some of Hessian birth. Named for Princess Mary, Duchess of Gloucester and Edinburgh, one of George III's daughters. Sophiasburgh, named for Princess Sophia, one of George III's daughters.
Surveyed in 1785 and 1787, settled by Loyalists from Nova Scotia and the Mainland. South Marysburgh named for Princess Mary, Duchess of Gloucester and Edinburgh, one of George III's daughters. Picton, named for Sir Thomas Picton Wellington, named after Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington Prince Edward County is located in Southern Ontario on a large irregular headland or littoral at the eastern end of Lake Ontario, just west of the head of the St. Lawrence River; this headland is surrounded on the north and east by the Bay of Quinte. As the Murray Canal now connects the bay to Lake Ontario across the only land connection, the county is technically an island. Murray Canal is crossed by 2 swing bridges, the single lane county road 64 bridge and the two lane country road 33 bridge. Bay of Quinte is crossed by two, 2-lane bridges of about 850m length - one carrying Provincial Highway 62 near Belleville and the other about 24km east carrying Provincial Highway 49 near Deseronto; the county's mild climate due to the influence of Lake Ontario has led to the establishment of about 50 vineyards and close to 30 wineries.
The lake effect from Lake Ontario results in heavier snowfall than in neighbouring counties. Prince Edward County is an island community encompassing 1,000 square kilometres, with over 500 kilometres of shoreline with beaches and limestone rich soil. Prince Edward County includes the population centres of Picton and Wellington and the communities of Ameliasburg, Carrying Place, Cherry Valley, Cressy, Fawcettville, Hillier, Lake On The Mountain, Mountain View, Rednersville, Rossmore, Salmon Point, Waupoos, Waupoos Island, West Lake and Yerexville.
