Biographical Sketch / Administrative History

The Montreal Graduate Nurses Association originally evolved from the Canadian Nurses Association, which was founded in 1895 with 25 nurses. The organization was incorporated in 1907 with the objectives of “the mutual instruction of Trained Nurses, the establishment of a sick benefit fund, to make the same provision for Nurses in case of sickness or death, and other analogous objects.” In 1924, the Canadian Nurses Association changed their name to the Montreal Graduate Nurses Association due to frequent confusion between the local and national-level organizations.
