Quebec City

(Tram) Background After the Seven Years' War, a victorious Great Britain (Kingdom of Great Britain) and a defeated France formalized the peace with the 1763 Treaty of Paris (Treaty of Paris (1763)). Under the terms of the treaty, the Kingdom of France ceded New France to Britain, choosing instead to keep the islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique for their valuable sugar production. New France (Canada) was considered less valuable, as its only significant

commercial product at the time was beaver pelt (Fur)s. The territory found along the St. Lawrence River, called ''Canada'' by the French, was renamed Quebec (Province of Quebec (1763-1791)) by the British, after its capital city (Quebec City). Non-military administration of the territories acquired by the British in the war was defined in the Royal Proclamation of 1763. *
