Image Preview
Ref Number
S-A97
Item Date
1884


Fort Pitt was one of several Hudson's Bay Company posts that were located along the river systems in Saskatchewan.


"In 1869-1870 the Hudson's Bay Company sold its vast land holdings in the northwest to the government of Canada. With western lands now under government control the focus shifted from the fur trade to settlement. The 'Bay' still retained 1/20th of the agricultural land, but it was the federal government who developed policies to encourage agricultural settlement on the prairies."
