In 1828, A. C. Buchanan was appointed by Britain as Upper Canada's first Chief Agent for Emigration. Buchanan himself advised the British authorities to appoint only Canadians as emigration agents, not as immigration officers, to ensure that the administration (of immigration to the colony from the mother country) was "free from local prejudice".
