Title
La communauté Écossaise de Montréal : Histoire et questions identitaires
Abstract
An examination of Scottish migration to Montreal, focusing on members of Scottish associations and interest-based groups and examining how Scottish identities have shaped the city from the eighteenth century to the twentieth century. According to the author, most Scots who migrated to Montreal were semi-skilled and skilled workers of urban, industrial Lowland origin. She points out that by the turn of the twentieth century, Scottish workers in Montreal gained autonomy from the city's small Scottish elite, who had established the Saint Andrew's Society in the nineteenth century to disseminate its values and ideas, by establishing the Sons of Scotland Benevolent Association as their own socio-cultural institution and mode of charitable support and assistance.
