Canada Trade Act
Passed by Imperial Parliament in 1822, with the
object of correcting the injustice to Upper Canada in the apportionment
of duties collected. The Quebec Legislature had refused to re-enact the
old Acts apportioning a share of duties to Upper Canada, and these Acts
were now made permanent. Lower Canada was debarred from imposing new
duties on imports by sea without the consent of Upper Canada and the
approval of the Imperial Parliament. =Bib.=: Kingsford, History of
