The Tory movement in Upper Canada was formed from the elements of the Family Compact following the War of 1812.[1] It was an early political party, merely a group of like minded conservative elite in the early days of Canada. The Tories would later form an alliance with the Parti bleu in Lower Canada after the Union of 1841 and finally merge as a single political party, Conservatives, after 1867.
