Aluminum Company of Canada, Limited
In 1902, the Northern Aluminum Company was chartered as a Canadian subsidiary of the Pittsburgh Reduction Company (later known as Alcoa). The company had built a smelter in 1899 on the banks of the St. Maurice, lured by the cheap electricity generated by the Shawinigan Water and Power Company that harnessed the 50-metre falls on the river. In 1925, the company’s name was changed to the Aluminum Company of Canada. In 1945, the trade name of the company was officially shortened to Alcan.
