Upper Canada Land Petitions Database Update

Library and Archives Canada is pleased to announce a major update to its online  Upper Canada Land Petitions (1763–1865) database.

  • All suggestions for corrections received from users since the original launch in September 2010 have been integrated into the database.
  • More than 5,000 references to land petitions occurring in the Upper Canada Sundries have been added to the database.

Through this updated online database, researchers can access more than 82,000 references to petitions for grants or leases of land created by individuals who lived in present-day Ontario between 1763 and 1865.

Furthermore, Library and Archives Canada is pleased to announce the addition of the digitized images of the Upper Canada land petitions from 326 microfilm reels, representing 357,831 new images to its website. Through the “microform digitization” research tool, users can browse the microfilm reels page by page.
