Rebellion of 1837-1838
Causes and consequences

There were many causes and consequences of the rebellions of 1837. There was so much wrong with Canada at the time socially, politically, and economically. There were long-term and short-term problems between the French and British in lower and upper Canada at the time. The British ruling a country with a majority of the population being French, a rebellion was bound to happen. These are the main causes of the rebellion and the consequences.

There were many social problems in upper and lower Canada at the time of 1837. The English and French had a long-term rivalry; they did not like each other. Putting these two cultures together was very hard. What language were they going to speak? What language will they teach in? It was a rebellion waiting to happen. Once the rebellion happened the consequence was that our first language turned to English and our second language became French but the French people are allowed to speak and teach in French.

There were also political causes for the rebellion. The government favored the wealthy British men and was run by rich white British men. The minority was ruling the majority. English ran Canada but the population was mostly French. That didn’t go over very well. The consequence after the rebellion was a more fair and equal government.

Economic long and short-term causes were very hard on Canada in 1837. There were many reserves and landowners which made it hard to settle down and work. They took the most fertile land and would rent it and sell it for very high prices. The crown and clergy also owned 2/7 of the land. None of these land owners did much with their land and did not allow roads to be built through them, making travel more of a hassle. After the rebellion Britain did not rule and crown and clergy was not given land as easily, making it easier for people to develop cities and towns in Canada.

The Rebellion of Canada from 1837-1838 played a huge part
