Hudson’s Bay Company Archives to be digitised

As part of its 150th anniversary, the province of Manitoba plans to digitise the Hudson’s Bay Company Archives (HBCA), part of the Archives of Manitoba (https://www.gov.mb.ca/chc/archives), with help from The Hudson’s Bay Company History Foundation. The project will see the digitisation of over 1000 reels of microfilm copies of records created between 1670 and 1870, and specifically post records.
