Quebec Act

1774. An Act of the British Parliament which superseded the Royal Proclamation of 1763, this was the constitution of the colony of Quebec. The Act extended the boundaries to the west and south so that they approached the earlier French limits of the colony. The Roman Catholic Church was officially recognized and permitted to collect its accustomed dues. The colony was given French civil law, but English criminal law remained in force. The Act marked the abandonment of the policy of assimilation or Anglicization and was resented by the English in Quebec and the other British North American colonies.
