    Women of religious orders in New France founded schools and hospitals in the region. There were three primary female religious orders that shaped the region:

    1. Ursulines: The first group of nuns to arrive in New France (1639). They created a convent in Quebec, the first North American school for girls, and built communities and schools as far south as New Orleans, Louisiana.

    2. Hospitalieres de Saint-Joseph: The group of Augustinians founded many hospitals, the two important ones being Hotel-Dieu in Quebec, and Hotel-Dieu in Montreal. They founded nursing schools, primary education schools for girls, and shelters for the poor and sick.

    3. Congregation de Notre-Dame: They established many schools throughout New France.
