General note

The earliest record of a water-powered mill in Canada was one at Port-Royal in 1607 which served the Acadian settlers. By the time of the British conquest, there were 150 grist mills in New France. During the early period of settlement in Canada, one grain-grinding mill was usually sufficient for the needs of one or two townships, but, by 1840, Lower Canada possessed about 400 grist mills. Windmills were uncommon and the usual source of power were water wheels. Steam engines were introduced into mills during the mid-nineteenth century.
