This has to do with history.
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.
