The Drouin records are on Ancestry, but are often not well indexed (despite work of several dedicated volunteers who have GREATLY improved the Jewish records).toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The JGS-Montreal has its own index of these records. In addition to traditional searches, we can also search by date and parents' names. In addition we have numerous other resources (including cemetery records) that are not otherwise available.
We are happy to help researchers - write to vitaljgs-montreal.org

I unfortunately had the same situation with a child of my great grandparents that I found out about. In my situation I found a record online and contacted the cemetery who told me that I had more information than they did. The administrator said that children were frequently buried in between adult graves and if there was a marker at all, it was small and may not have lasted. He told us there was no place to put a stone or go say tehillim. Canada does have lots of records that were kept by rabbis, call Drouin Records, where I found a lot of my family's birth and marriage records from Montreal, so you could try that. Ours were on Ancestry. They were kept by the rabbis. If you don't have a subscription, email me directly with the info and I can try to find it for you.
