Our History  
The name of our new school reflects the historic name given to an 1820's area settlement for refugee blacks who came to Upper Canada through the Underground Railway.  The Wilberforce Colony was named in honour of William Wilberforce, a British politician who led the movement to abolish slavery in the British Colonies.
 Wilberforce supported the campaign for the complete abolition of slavery, and continued his involvement after 1826, when he resigned from Parliament because of his failing health. That campaign led to the Slavery Abolition Act 1833, which abolished slavery in most of the British Empire; Wilberforce died just three days after hearing that the passage of the Act through Parliament was assured. He was buried in Westminster Abbey, close to his friend William Pitt.
