For an incredible family adventure, travel back in time to 1815 and experience life at the world’s largest fur trade post at the Fort William Historical Park.

With 57 heritage and modern buildings on 250 acres, Fort William offers a vivid and rich tapestry of fur trade life, running the gamut from culture to crafts, medicine to business, domestic life to heritage farming.
Some of Canada’s most renowned explorers were also connected to the NWC, including Simon Fraser, Sir Alexander Mackenzie and David Thompson, which is indicative of how the fur trade played a key role in forming the foundations of Canada.
