The Millennium Collection: The Final Four

Fathers of Invention

Canada's most prolific modern inventor, Hamilton-born engineer George Klein developed ground-breaking technologies in the fields of health, space and transportation, and headed the design of Canada's first nuclear reactor.

Abraham Gesner gave the world a better light by creating a new lamp oil called kerosene in 1846. Recognized as the founder of the oil industry, his process for distilling bituminous material was later used to produce petroleum.

Known around the globe as the father of the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell made numerous scientific discoveries at his home on Cape Breton Island, where he worked on everything from a person carrying kite to a record setting hydrofoil.

Quebec mechanic Joseph-Armand Bombardier changed winter recreation and travel forever with his invention of the snowmobile. Since selling its first Ski-Doo in 1959, Bombardier has also expanded into the rail, aerospace and defence sectors.
