The Manufacturing Industries of Canada Considered Geographically


Three requirements if Canada is going to be a manufacturing nation: an abundance of raw material, easy conveyance of man and goods from place to place, and a suitable population. A consideration and survey of Canada's raw materials. The state of our railways and transportation system. The third requirement of population, which is lacking. The distinct Canadian nationality which has developed. What we as Canadians have done to take advantage of our resources and our facilities for transportation. A conservative estimate of the amount invested in manufacturing in Canada. The Census of 1901 gives us the number of factories in Canada and the value of their output. A few particular branches of industry that help to make up this total, with some details of production: Butter and Cheese; Milling; the Woollen Industry; Sugar; Cottons; Agricultural Implements; Wood Pulp; Iron and Steel. How each of us may do our part to assist manufacturing in Canada. Encouraging manufacturing to keep our population. The benefits of buying "Made in Canada" goods. Our duty to study the importance of supporting the home manufacturer in a practical way.
