Notice ...

  • In most of Québec in 1921 the second most common religion after Roman Catholicism was held by less than ten per cent of the population.


  • The St Lawrence River valley in 1921 was an intensely homogeneous area when it came to religion.
  • The presence of Presbyterians and Anglicans along Québec's American border may be a sign of adjacent New England roots.
