HBC Trading Post at The Canadian Canoe Museum

003In 1998 with the support of The Hudson's Bay Company and their History Foundation we were able to recreate a fur trade post inside our Museum. Built about 1876, the timber frame structure stored porvisions at the Hudson's Bay Company post of Michipicoten on Lake Superior. We felt it was only fitting that our "modern day" trading post offer authentic Hudson's Bay products to our visitors. From Point Blankets and Throws to T-Shirts and Paddles!

We also offer a wide range of artisan products made from authentic HBC materials.  Be sure and check out our hand crafted mittens, mukluk liners and even flasks with their own "blanket" cover!
