Question
can you list the long term effects of the treaty of paris in 1763, (the french and indian war)?

Answer
The most significant long term effect was probably British control of Canada and the removal of France from North America.  This indirectly helped lead to American Independence as well.  The treaty also established Britain as the second most important power in the western hemisphere, behind Spain, and made clear that France would not be a major colonial power.
