Westminster Conference

Westminster Conference,

1866–67, held in London to settle the plan for confederation of the Canadian provinces. The resolutions on confederation that had been framed at the Quebec Conference (1864) were the basis for those promulgated at the Westminster Conference and incorporated in the British North America Act (1867), under which the dominion of Canada was created.
