Since when was India a British colony?

"Canada" as a colony was never completely controlled by the British until the French capitulated New France on September 8th, 1760. However, Canada first became a colony in 1497 when John Cabot first landed and "claimed" the land in the name of Henry VII, then King of England. Canada officially became the "federal Dominion of Canada" on July 1st, 1867, marking the end of (overt) British rule over the Head of Government (the British monarch is the Head of State in Canada to this day). So officially a British colony: 1760-1867 European dominion: 1497-1760

How did the British Empire not benefit its Empire?

I think it is fair, at least I hope it is, to say that Britain did well for the Empire. I also hope that those who were subjected to British rule, for as long as it lasted, do not feel that the British are too bad a lot. I am British, but I do not see myself now as a master of anything other than a small piece of real estate in UK. It was the way things were then. I am not going to be apologetic about what the British did, yes, we didn't get it right all the time. But it is the thrust of my point that there have been many, far worse Imperial powers in history. In some instances Britain did benefit its colonies. And if all you think we did was to spread Cricket & Christianity then there are worse things than those in this world.
