Slavery in Canada / written by Webster ; illustrated by Dimani Mathieu Cassendo.: K34-11/2020E-PDF

"Despite the efforts of historians and researchers to document nearly 200 years of slavery in Canada, it remains a topic that is little known across the country. Slavery was practised on Canadian soil during the colonial period mainly in three regions of the country: Quebec, the Atlantic provinces and Ontario. It began in the early days of New France and ended in the early decades of the 1800s"--Introduction, page 1.
