Textbook of Canadian Masonry

With calloused and steady hands, brick and stone masons have made an enduring mark on the Canadian landscape. Dwellings, businesses and industrial facilities; parliament buildings, museum and places of worship. The buildings surround and sustain us. Some are works of art in their own right, while others fulfill a humbler, but no less vital role.

Between the fortified stone walls of Quebec City, to the building of the newest Canadian museum, the Human Rights Museum, there is a common narrative that spans the centuries. These structures speak of the strength and warmth of masonry materials, and the patience, skill and artistry with which they were laid. They speak of the deep knowledge that has passed from mason to mason, from shore to shore of this country for four hundred years.
