The statue of Queen Victoria in the centre of Victoria Square is the work of sculptor Marshall Wood, and was unveiled in 1872 by Lord Dufferin, the Governor General of Canada. At the time, the area surrounding Victoria Square was a prestigious neighbourhood.
It was funded by donations from a citizens' committee, by public subscription, on the occasion of Prince Arthur’s year living in Montreal. The bronze was cast by Holbrook & Company, Chelsea, England in 1869.
