The Fathers of Confederation at the London Conference

Painting of the Fathers of Confederation at the London Conference

This painting features delegates to the London Conference, which was the last of three conferences that led to Confederation. The London Conference took place in London, England, in December of 1866 at the Westminster Palace Hotel. Sixteen leaders from the Province of Canada, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia came to London to turn the rough draft of the Québec Resolutions into the “British North America Act.”
