The Province of Lower Canada was a British colony from 1791 to 1841, when it merged with Upper Canada to form the Province of Canada. The Province of Canada was dissolved and the land divided into the provinces of Quebec and Ontario following the Canadian Confederation in 1867.
Lower Canada comprised modern-day Labrador and southern Quebec. The area was predominately French speaking due to it including land that was once part of the colony of New France.
