The History of Fiddling in Northern Alberta to 1950

In 1670 the Hudson’s Bay Company was granted a charter for the vast territory that belonged to the Hudson Bay drainage system. By the late 1700s and early 1800s the Hudson's Bay Company had begun to establish fur trading posts throughout the North-Western Territory, including what is now the Province of Alberta. Trading posts were generally built on the banks of major waterways, the primary transportation routes of the time.
