Keys to History:

In Canada, the phenomenon of industrialization was born in Montreal around the 1840s.

During the second half of the 19th century, most companies were in the sector of heavy industry, which comprised iron and steel industries making, among other things, stoves, utensils, tools, pipes, rails and motors. It also included factories specializing in the production of material for the railroads.
