Name of creator
The Ontario Advisory Committee on Confederation (O.A.C.C.) was established in 1965. Ian Macdonald (chief economist of the Department of Economics and Development) was named chairman. The principal function of the Committee was to advise the Ontario government concerning its relationship with other provincial governments and the federal government in the area on constitutional requirements. A Globe and Mail article entitled "Confederation Committee Terms Set Out" stated that "The Premier [John Robarts] said future requirements for the province in connection with British North America must by studied. Certain goals and objections in the fields of biculturalism or multiculturalism and bilingualism must be attained."
This fonds was created by the Ontario Advisory Committee on Confederation and was in the custody Professor Symons, who was a member, until it was donated to the Trent University Archives.
Scope and content
This fonds contains briefs, clippings, minutes of meetings, agendas, correspondence, press releases and the Deutsch Project papers. Also included is a copy of OACC: Background Papers and Reports (Toronto: Queen's Printer, 1967).
Immediate source of acquisition
This fonds was donated by Professor T.H.B. Symons.
