Coming activities and events

From October 15th 2014 to January 30th 2015

In August 1914, Great Britain went to war with Germany, consequently leading to the involvement of Canada and the other British Dominions. Reactions were strong in Montréal as the world entered into a terrible conflict.

Montréal put its industrial resources to work for Europe. For the first time in their existence, local businesses became engaged in military mass production: ships were transformed into battle cruisers, and the Angus shops made shells and casings. Montréal provided food, clothes, shoes, and funds for Europe, and these unprecedented exports helped improve the city’s economic situation.
