Virtual Exhibition


Salaberry-de-Valleyfield: at the heart of Canadian industrial history

Since the end of the 19th century, Canadians have marched to the rhythm of industrial machinery and work schedules. This exhibition will acquaint you with a unique city born from industry. From the early beginnings and progressing through the construction of canals and water-reliant factories in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield and elsewhere in Canada, you are invited to follow the course of history, one fashioned by pure strength, courage, and determination … a story in which Canadian working men and women are the real heroes.

Since 2008, this bilingual virtual exhibition can be viewed on the website of the Musée virtuel du Canada (MVC).
