Summary in English
Long before the first French settlers came to Canada in 1535, the native Indians had been growing and smoking tobacco, probably for more than 500 years. By 1800, tobacco was produced commercially along the St. Lawrence and Ottawa rivers in Quebec and in Essex and Kent counties in Ontario. Ever since 1835, when the government encouraged tobacco production, the industry has expanded steadily. The greatest expansion started in the 1920s, when tobacco was grown in Ontario in the new belt of Norfolk, Oxford, Elgin, and Brant counties. Tobacco has been grown in the Martime Provinces of Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick since 1961.
