Who Are The Founder of Canada?
The name “Fathers of Confederation” is given to those who attended the Charlottetown and Quebec Conferences in 1864, and the London Conference of 1866, to establish the Canadian Confederation. There were 36 original Fathers of Confederation. Queen Victoria, who supported and encouraged this process, is known as the Mother of Confederation.
She was the first Monarch of the 1867 Constitution and personally chose Ottawa as Canada’s capital city. The political leaders who brought the other provinces into Confederation after 1867 are also referred to as “Fathers of Confederation.”
