This comparative study of domestic textile production in Canada in the later part of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century illustrates a greater persistence of the industry in the province of Quebec than in Ontario. Basing themselves on census data and various government documents, the authors attempt to explain why domestic textile production continues in Quebec until the Second World War. This production occurred mainly in locations away from main urban and industrial centers and in the eastern part of the province. After the Second World War, domestic textile production persisted under the form of hobby and handicraft. Authors: Sophie-Laurence Lamontagne and Fernand Harvey. Published: 1997. In french only
