Description
The intendant of New France was the second most powerful person after the governor, but he had great power in the affairs of the colony. His jurisdiction covered three areas: justice, police and finance. Jean Talon, Gilles Hocquart and François Bigot were known as intendants from the colonial period.
This collection contains ordinances, regulations, judgments and other orders issued by the intendants. Legislative, judicial and administrative powers of the intendants were so big they extended to most aspects of colonial life. Documents therefore cover the following topics: trade, industry, finance, religion, family, agriculture, roads, justice, public works, lands and lordships, public order, etc.
