Biography / Administrative history

The Gazette was founded by the publisher Fleury Mesplet as a French-language newspaper in 1778 in Montreal, Quebec. In the late 1700s, the newspaper began publishing bilingually, and by 1822 it had completed the switch to publishing exclusively in English. The newspaper is one of the oldest continuously-published papers in North America. Until 1968, it was independently-owned and operated, but in that year, it became part of the Southam Chain of newspapers. In 1978, with the demise of the Montreal Star, it became the dominant English-language newspaper in Montreal, and in Quebec as a whole, a position it continues to occupy up to the present. Currently the newspaper reaches more than 75% of all anglophone households in Montreal. website: <
