The history of boundaries and place names within Canada has been fluid. National Resources Canada http://www.nrcan.gc.ca has a useful series of pages showing Territorial Evolution over time. See http://atlas.nrcan.gc.ca/site/english/maps/historical/territorialevolution
Library and Archives Canada http://www.collectioncanada.gc.ca also has a series of pages detailing the history of the Canadian Confederation, including a section Towards Confederation covering the pre-1867 administration of Canada
This page and its subordinate pages are currently place-holders/work in progress. Please contact TRP Admin for guidance on fleshing out these pages.
