Jeanne Mance (1606-1673) From France to New France
Until December 2019
Presented for Montreal’s 375th anniversary, the exhibition shows the importance of Jeanne Mance in the founding of Montreal and the Hôtel-Dieu.
The exhibition focuses on the life of Jeanne Mance, Canada’s first lay nurse and co-founder of Montreal. Follow her journey, first in France where she was born in 1606, then in Paris, where she found the necessary support to go to Ville-Marie and establish the first hospital, the Hôtel-Dieu.
Throughout the exhibition, discover the major role that Jeanne Mance played in the survival of the colony, which earned her the designation of a person of national historic significance, and the most recent discoveries about her.
