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
