Exhibition Room - Place des Arts Book

This photo exhibition traces the history of Scottish immigrants in Montreal, highlighting their invaluable contributions to the city’s development in the 19th century.
Learn about the key role these first- and second-generation immigrants played in the city’s development—as merchants, financiers, and industrialists. The Scots also made contributions in the fields of science and education and became deeply committed to several philanthropic initiatives—a commitment that continues today, to the benefit of their fellow citizens.
