Four documents are presented, with an introductory text, illustrating the treatment of conscientious objectors in the British province of Upper Canada [the Canadian province of 1791‐1841 corresponding to modern Ontario]. The documents relate to legislative exemption for peace sects (1793), Quakers and military requisitions (1810‐17), a Quaker family in the War of 1812, and Quaker conscientious objectors in rural Upper Canada (1840).
