Title
Montreal’s Great Experiment: Poverty and the Montreal Protestant House of Industry and Refuge, 1863-1901
Abstract
The Montreal Protestant House of Industry and Refuge was founded in 1863 by a group of prominent business elites, and rapidly became one of the most important sources of indoor and outdoor relief for the city’s Protestant poor in the nineteenth century. However, the author argues the Montreal Protestant House of Industry and Refuge also constituted a social experiment in reform that re-shaped the ideologies of the managing governors through constant interaction with the city’s destitute population.
