Main-d'oeuvre immigrante et développement dualiste : l'économie canadienne au milieu du XIXe siècle

Abstract

This article studies the possible link between the development of Canada’s early manufacturing enclave and the important immigrant stream from the British Isles in the mid-nineteenth century. Given the strategic position of the Lower Canadian port cities in the triangular flow of labour within the North Atlantic economy, the pattern of growth that ensued can be described as a hybrid form of Lewis’s familiar dualistic model of economic development.
