Abstract
The collective social portraits of two groups of Canadian industrialists, 168 from the years 1880-1885 and 231 from the years 1905-1910. The author compares such factors as their ethnic and religious traditions, birthplaces, education, family backgrounds, career patterns, political and social activities, economic mobility, and regional differentials in analyzing the changing composition of these elites from the two eras. The largest concentration of entrepreneurs during these periods was in Montreal.
