Title
Insanity, the Asylum and Society in Nineteenth Century Quebec and Ontario
Abstract
Unlike Ontario, Quebec adopted a system of “farming out” of the care and treatment of the insane during the nineteenth century. This system first emerged between the state and the proprietors of the province’s first permanent lunatic asylum at Beauport, near Quebec City. In 1845, a group consisting of James Douglas, Joseph Morrin and Charles Frémont acquired a monopoly from the government to provide accommodation for the insane in the province at an asylum at Beauport.
