The Meech Lake Accord was born in 1987 out of the agreement to address Quebec's five constitutional demands before signing the 1982 constitutional amendments. The first meeting was held at Meech Lake, Quebec with all the First Ministers, and the deadline for all provinces to ratify the Meech Lake Accord was June 23, 1990. The final conference was held in Ottawa June 3-10, 1990. The Accord ultimately failed as all provinces were not able to ratify it by the deadline.
