History Biographical
The Industrial Removal Office was an American organization which existed from 1900 to 1917, the First World War bringing about its dissolution. It was responsible for resettling Jewish immigrants in jobs, some of which were in Montreal and the Canadian West. Funded by Baron de Hirsch in collaboration with B'nai Brith, the organization helped 75,000 Jews to new homes in less congested areas that had Jewish communities.
