The Fleets

Franco-Canadian Steam Navigation Company

The Franco-Canadian Steam Navigation Company only operated for part of three years, between 1900-1902, with chartered ships. They made no more than 11 sailings between Dunkirk, Havre and Bordeaux to the St. Lawrence, plus one each from Hamburg and Christiania (Oslo).

Many thanks to Ted Finch for his assistance in collecting this data. The following list was extracted from various sources. This is not an all inclusive list but should only be used as a guide.
