Title
Changes in the Geographical Distribution of the Jewish Population of Metropolitan Montreal in the Decennial Periods from 1901 to 1961 and the Estimated Possible Changes During the Period from 1961 to 1971: A Preliminary Study
Abstract
The Jewish population of Metropolitan Montreal increased from 28,895 in 1911 to 102,726 in 1961. However, the author points out, the percentage of Jews among the total population of Metropolitan Montreal decreased from 6.2 in 1921 to 5.7 in 1951 and decreased still further to 4.9 percent in 1961. In all years from 1901 to 1961, Jews formed the third largest ethnic group in Montreal, but were being overtaken by Italian immigrants. Also by 1951, a residential change had taken place in the geographic distribution of the Jewish population of Metropolitan Montreal, with families moving out of the old Jewish settlement area to Snowdon and NDG, as well as suburban areas such as Hamstead, St. Laurent, Town of Mount Royal and Cote-St-Luc.
