Title
The Montreal Garment Industry, 1871-1901
Abstract
Between 1871 and 1901, the garment industry was the largest employer in Montreal, and Montreal was Canada's garment capital. Montreal manufacturers specialized in the production of low-priced, cheap quality men's wear aimed at the rural labouring population and at shanty-men throughout Canada. Most of the employees, whether home workers or shop workers, were French-Canadian females. Most of the shop workers were overseen by Jewish males.
