Tracking Years of Change
The origin of chemistry and science in Canada can be traced back to the early 1800s. In 1813, John Struthers, a Scottish-born Canadian physician, published the first book on chemistry in Canada. Struthers’ work was followed by several other significant early contributions, including those of John Richardson (1819), George Brown (1824), and Alexander Murray (1831).
These early works laid the foundation for the development of a strong chemistry and science community in Canada.
