The Jeanie Johnston Educational Foundation

The Jeanie Johnston Educational Foundation's most recent project is the Canada Railway Times website.





The Foundation was created in 2004 to commemorate the Jeanie Johnston which was built at Quebec in 1847 by the Scottish shipwright John Munn. The replica ship visited Montreal in 2003. The original Jeanie Johnston carried Irish Immigrants  to Canada in the 1850’s without loss of life. The Foundation is a registered Canadian charity that promotes studies of Canada  in relation to literacy, immigration, history, and active citizenship.


The first website developed by The Jeanie Johnston Educational Foundation was
