« L'ALLIANCE ÉCOSSAISE AU QUÉBEC »
Author : Carl Beaulieu, historian - (Edition sold out)

Outline

Influenced by his master's thesis subject related to industrialist B.A. Scott, corporate historian Carl Beaulieu traces a portrait of the socioeconomic and population contribution of Scots to Québec mainly in Montréal, Charlevoix and the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean areas, major centers of "Bonnie Scotland" on the Québec territory.

Allied to indian and french nations, Scots brought a significant contribution through their partnership with the latter. Odyssey of this alliance can be found in the exploration, merchandising trade, commercial navy and navy construction, fur and lumber trade, settlement and industrilization through remarkable figures from these families: Alexander, Blackburn, Blair, Donaldson, Fraser, Harper, Grant, Lindsay, McLaren, McLeod, McKenzie, McLean, McNicoll, Murdock, Murray, Ross, Scott, Skeen, Spence, Robertson and Warren.

Thousands of people are descendants of these entrepreneurs since the arrival of the first scot in Charlevoix around 1760. This legacy is acknowledged with the foundation of local, national and international enterprises as well as municipalites (Murray Bay, Port-au-Persil, Pointe-au-Pic, Baie-Saint-Paul, Chicoutimi, Jonquière,Roberval and Alma). These enterprises enabled the industrialization of the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean area in 1926 which resulted in the foundation and development of other cities and villages in the Charlevoix and Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean areas.
