Biographie / Histoire administrative

Sir Sandford Fleming emigrated from Scotland in 1845 and completed his engineering education in Canada. By 1857 he was engineer-in-chief of the Ontario Northern Railway. In 1863 the Canadian government appointed him chief surveyor of a proposed route for the intercolonial railway linking the Canadas to the Maritime colonies. He subsequently became chief engineer of the Intercolonial. In 1871 the Canadian Pacific Railway Company chose Fleming to direct the construction of the transcontinental railway.

As a distinguished scientist, he was the prime advocate of the adoption of an international system of standard time and wrote many scientific monographs. He also worked privately for the cause of imperial unity, and designed the first Canadian postage stamp. The Canadian Encyclopedia, 1985 p. 648.
