Between 1899 and 1906, M. Hahn studied and fine-tuned his art in both Canada and Germany, where he spent three years. Upon returning to Canada, he worked as a monument designer for the Thomson Monument Company, an association that would span over 40 years.

Starting in 1912, he was also a modelling instructor at the Ontario College of Art, where he served as head of the sculpture department until he retired in 1951.

In 1928, he founded the Sculptors Society of Canada (SSC) together with other sculptors, and was its first president.
