The first industrial exhibition held in Canada, and
probably the first in the world, was that of 1737, promoted by the
Intendant Hocquart. It included fruits and grains, woods and furs, and
the products of the mines and the fisheries. The exhibition was
afterwards sent to France. A provincial exhibition was held in Toronto
in 1846; Ottawa had an exhibition in 1878; Montreal in 1880; Halifax in
1881; and St. John in 1883. Since then many other cities and towns have
used this means of illustrating the industrial resources of the locality
and the country. =Bib.=: Johnson, First Things in Canada.
