The fur trade is, for good reason, symbolic of the history of Canada since the 1600s. But that doesn’t mean it has been an unchanging, uniform commercial relationship. Looking at the long term (what French historians call the longue durée), examine the fur trade in the northeast, the North, the West, and on the west coast from ca. 1600 to ca. 1840. What were its defining features over more than two centuries?
