Thank you for your question! :)
First, the Conquest (1754-1760) stirs up the tensions already present between France and Great Britain, thus leading to the Seven Years' War (1756-1763), the first global war.
Then, in 1760, Great Britain won the War of conquest in New France and seized its territory. While awaiting the outcome of the Seven Years' War, which ended 3 years later with the Treaty of Paris, Great Britain established a military regime in the colony.
Finally, in 1763, Great Britain officially emerged victorious from the Seven Years' War. The Treaty of Paris made official the ownership of New France to Great Britain. It was however a little later, the same year, that the Royal Proclamation gave more details concerning this newly conquered British territory now called the Province of Quebec.
