Company Of De Caen
Organized by William de Caen and his nephew Emery,
Societies for improving the conditions of agriculture
were founded in Nova Scotia, 1789; in Quebec the same year; and in Upper
Canada in 1792. Simcoe in Upper Canada and Dorchester in Quebec did much
to further agricultural interests, but Quebec owes most to J. F.
Perrault (q.v.), and Nova Scotia to John Young (q.v.). An
agricultural school was founded at Ste. Anne de la Pocatiere in 1859;
the Guelph Agricultural College was established in 1874; the Nova
Scotia School of Agriculture, 1885; and the Macdonald College, at Ste.
Anne de Bellevue, opened in the fall of 1907. Agricultural Colleges are
also in operation in connection with the provincial universities of
Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. =Index=: (Count Frontenac era) In New France,
