First School Opens in Montreal - Apr 30, 1658
Marguerite Bourgeoys opened the first school at Montréal, QC, in a former stable. Born in France, Bourgeoys made the voyage to New France in 1653, with the intention of opening a school. She returned home shortly after, recruiting more young women to help her teach. With the extra help, she was able to prepare for the arrival of the filles du roi, young girls sent by Louis XIV to bolster the colony’s population and produce families.
