Transported British Association members between England and Canada in 1884 - The British Association visitors arrived on several different ships- the SS Parisian,SS Polynesian and the SS Oregon of the Allan Line among those . It seems about 800 members decided to take advantage of the offer of reduced ocean fares and free railway trips on the CPR-the Canadian government contributing $25,000 to offset costs. The Montreal meeting was the first BA meeting to be held outside of the United Kingdom and therefore garnished a lot of interest.
