On August 1, 1834 the Slavery Abolition Act came into effect. This act officially freed slaves in Canada. Let us celebrate Emancipation Day by committing to end systemic racism in all its forms. None of us have justice until all of us have justice.

On August 1, 1833 Britain abolished slavery in its colonies, kind of. The enslaved had to work as unpaid "apprentices" for five more years. The slave holders were compensated so much money that it wasn't paid off until 2015.
