Notes from "10 places that will help you understand Canada’s story"

The Sir George-Étienne Cartier House in Old Montreal illuminates the life of a lawyer and businessman who played a key role in Confederation. In the middle of the 19th century, several small British colonies scattered across northern North America began debating the merits of uniting as one country. Cartier helped build a coalition supporting the idea in what are now the provinces of Quebec and Ontario. (Just think how hard that must have been in the days before social media and cable news shows!) At his home today, you can delve into the history of Confederation through interactive exhibitions and guided tours.
