    Alternate History Idea: Kingdom of New France

    (Based off old threads I've made years ago, including this and this, and another dead thread I've read, this, and stuff on deviantart, like this and this. This idea is a bit unrealistic, but bear with me. I may make this part of a timeline) What if, the Americans were able to capture to Quebec...

  4. What If Ottawa Not Chosen as Canada's National Capital?

    Part of Canada's founding myth is that during Confederation Queen Victoria chose Ottawa to be the national capital of the new country. More likely this was decided by the Queen's advisors and High Ranking Canadians consulting the Queen, then she would make the decision final. From what I...

    How would the USA partition Canada?

    Assuming a conflict arose at some point in the first half of the 20th century, likely from the USA facing off against the British, and for whatever reason Canada was unable to successfully proclaim neutrality (either because of American mistrust, some false-flag operation like the USS Maine, or...

    Numbered Treaties

    Does anybody know how I could reproduce this map to a WorldA patch by Hadaril? I am trying to figure where to put the borders and such, but I'm poor at making maps. Only good at making flags. Not sure if this is the right forum and I just need this patch only Numbered Treaties map was made by...

    American Civil War in 1996?

    If Canada were to have a Civil War after the Independence of Quebec, what would a spillover look like? And a Second American Civil War? Ignore this maybe being not possible, I’m looking for the effects.
  8. AHC: Reverse the fates of Canada and Mexico

    Your challenge is to have a prosperous, stable Mexico and a conflicted, troubled Canada. Bonus points if the POD is after June 1, 1867.

    Canadian Civil War Scenarios

    Your challenge is to have a complicated Canadian civil war, the PoD can be anywhere in the 20th century. One possible kickoff point would be if the Quebecois chose to have a war of independence.
  10. WI/AHC: Ukrainian as a co-official language of the Canadian Prairies, post-1867 POD

    Hello everyone, this is my first thread. As I know, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba are home to many peoples from a wide variety of national backgrounds, notably Germans, English, Irish, and Ukrainians, but many and many more. Since the domestic Canadian population was very reluctant to move...
  11. Impact of British Alaska on Canadian Confederation and British Columbia

    In OTL, the USA purchased Alaska from the Russian Empire in 1867. But, what if Britain expressed more interest and was able to purchase it from the Russians? How does this affect the formation of the Canadian Confederation and how is British Columbia in particular affected by this? Do they join...

    Largest possible United States at the time of Independence

    Many Ameriwank scenarios begin with the nascent United States coming out of the American Revolution having won much more land from Great Britain. However, I was wondering which British territories in the Western Hemisphere could have most plausibly been taken by the Americans in the peace...
  13. Camerica and Canzac - Two Anglo Towers of Canada

    What I’m planning to do is work on a timeline where there are two Anglo Canada’s: a us based one which is culturally linked to US Another where there is more commonality with the Anzacs Potential POVs: James Cook doesn’t go to Hawaii after going to the North during third voyage, instead...
  14. Balkanized Canada: More Provinces

    As many people on this site, I've always got a few ideas for TLs or scenarios bouncing around. Canadian history is by no means by only interest, but it may be my area of greatest expertise. I also find the development of modern day Quebecois politics from some old British guarantees to be...

    From gulfs Mexico to Saint Lawrence. The American conquest in 1812 (part 1)

    In this, the PoD is that Tecumseh dies in the battle of Tippecanoe and with him, his confederacy. Because of this when war breaks out in 1812, Isaac Brooks and the Canadian garrison are outnumbered and are defeated by William Hull, leading to a quick occupation of Southern Ontario. The...
  16. Canadian Gaelic

    IOTL Cape Breton, which would become the center of the Gaelic speaking community in Canada, was a separate colony from Nova Scotia briefly from after the ARW until 1820. If it's not reintegrated into Nova Scotia in 1820, it would become a majority Gaelic speaking colony. The addition of a...
  17. Alaska as a Canadian province

    Could Alaska have been purchased by Britain instead of the US, or otherwise integrated into Canada? Were Alaska a Canadian province, how would Canadian and US history be different?
  18. No Forward Pass: Canadian Rugby Football League

    Hey folks, an idea I've toyed with for years, seeing if there is interest in following such a TL or in collaboration. Would cover the entire origins and development of Canadian Rugby/Canadian football, with the major POD being the 1929 season. For those of you who dont know, this is the first...
  19. Why are parts of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago in the Northwest Territories?

    Why are a quarter of Kitlineq (Victoria Island) , half of Illulliq (Melville Island), Banks Island and some minor islands in the Northwest Territories, instead of being in Nunavut like they should logically be? It makes no sense that the border of Nunavut, after extending to about the western...

    DWI: What if New England hadn't succeeded in the War of 1812?
    Threadmarks: DWI

    As we all know, the War of 1812 was a humiliation for America, and after the White House was burnt to the ground by the British, the Hartford Convention declared independence for New England, which distracted the Americans enough for the British to capture the Great Lakes and the Michigan...
