BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY: SLAVERY IN CANADA :
Slavery existed in Canada in the 1830's when slavery was officially abolished, some slaves were of African, descent, while others were aboriginal. Slavery which was practice within Canada was practice primarily by aboriginal groups, while there was never any significant Canada trade in African slaves, native nations frequently enslaved their rivals and a very modest number were purchased by colonial administrators until 1833 when the slave was abolished across the British Empire. A few African Slaves were forcibly brought as chattel by European to New France, Acadia and later British North America.
