HBC Archives Tours

Planned tours of the Hudson’s Bay Company Archives will take place on August 12, 2015 (one day prior to the conference).  Two tours are scheduled, one at 3 p.m. and the other at 4 p.m., each lasting approximately 45 minutes.  Reservations (available through the registration process) are required, as space is limited.

From the HBC Archives website:
“Founded by Royal Charter in 1670, the Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) is the oldest chartered trading company in the world. Meticulous records were kept, leaving a legacy of information of tremendous significance documenting the growth and expansion of the Hudson’s Bay Company in the vast territories of Rupert’s Land, through the fur trade and exploration and the later development of a retail empire.”

For more information, visit the HBC Archives.
