He came to Canada in 1880 and settled at Winnipeg where he worked briefly in partnership with Thomas Parr. From 1881 to 1883 he working during the building boom then joined C. O. Wickenden as an assistant in his Winnipeg office. From 1886 to 1887 he was a draftsman for George Browne. When Wickenden relocated to Vancouver in 1889, Dalton went with him and collaborated on a number of projects before opening his own office in 1893. He designed institutional, commercial and industrial projects around the province. He and wife Francis Walton (1856-?) had two children, both born in Manitoba: Arthur Tinniswood Dalton (b 1883) and Joanna Frances “Ivey” Dalton (b 1885).
