ANNAND, William, Canadian statesman, born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1808. He was elected to the Nova Scotia assembly in 1837, and allied himself with the old reform party that was led by Joseph Howe, which established responsible government in the province and introduced various other reforms. He was a member of the executive council and financial secretary of Nova Scotia from 1859 to 1863, and was called upon to form an administration for that province in November 1867, a duty which he accomplished most successfully, and in which he held consecutively the offices of provincial treasurer and president of the council, the latter being held conjointly with the premiership until his resignation in May 1875. On 11 May 1875, he was appointed agent in London for the promotion of immigration, and for representing the interests of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick more effectually in the United Kingdom and on the continent of Europe. He was also a repeal delegate to Great Britain with Mr. Howe and others in 1866 and 1868. Mr. Annand has been a contributor to the Nova Scotia press, has edified the "Speeches and Public Letters of Joseph Howe" (Boston, 1858), and is the author of a pamphlet on confederation (London, 1866). He has held the office of queen's printer for several years.
