The role of the Indian Affairs Branch in the Mackenzie: R5-341/1964E-PDF

past, present and future /

"It is traditionally considered that North America was discovered in error and explored in exasperation by men looking for the riches of the Orient. Early knowledge of the Eastern Arctic was gained by Corte-Real in 1500 and others who followed, looking for the Northwest Passage and eventually settling for whales and furs. The search for new sources of furs took the agents of the trading companies right across the north and they left posts, many of which exist today as settlements of the Northwest Territories."--Historical Summary, p. [1].
