Web Links

The First Nations of Quebec

This site includes information about Aboriginal People in the province.   It covers the population and communities of the 11 Quebec First Nations, as well as articles about their traditions, industries, and spirituality. There are several articles on Aboriginal business initiatives. Note that this site also includes information about the Quebec Métis, a group that is not examined in InfoCanada: Quebec.

Montreal Then and Now

"Urban Life through Two Lenses" is a virtual exhibit of the McCord Museum in Montreal, Quebec. This exhibit presents two pictures of the same view of Montreal, taken 100 years apart by two different photographers. This site will give students many ideas about how cities change over time because of population growth, developments in transportation, and new industries. Some of the photographs also reveal the city's attempts at historical preservation. Students may also enjoy some of the Keys to History presentations available through the home page. You will need FLASH for the Keys to History presentations.

Answer Key

?_Geography  Compare and Contrast

Students should take notes under the organizer's four categories as they browse through the pairs of photographs. Give students information about any relevant major events that were taking place at the time, for example, the Industrial Revolution, which occurred throughout the 1800s. Note that filling in columns 4 and 5 requires students to draw inferences, as does question #4 of the activity. Some students may require assistance with these steps. Possible answers for question 4 include: Montreal seems to have grown a great deal. There are many more buildings, especially office buildings. This means a larger population and a bigger work force. The economy of Montreal is no longer dependent on industry. Students should support their conclusions with evidence from the photographs.
