We’ll bet none of you reading this are fur trappers or have portaged a canoe at any time in your life. A lot of people are averse to that level of physical exertion to begin with, and they wouldn’t want to have to heave a canoe up on their shoulders and start trekking through the brush. But that’s what the early voyageurs in Canada had to do as part of their work in Canada’s early years and the fur trade that began some 600 years ago. Today most people here and elsewhere will know the Hudson’s Bay Company as a department store carrying all sorts of products and you can shop the Bay Canada online.
It is Canada’s oldest company, and back long before Canada was even Confederated as a country the Bay dealt with one product, and one product only – beaver furs, or ‘pelts’ as they were referred to. Folks back in Europe were clamoring for them to have warm and soft garments made out of them, and all that demand led to a very adventurous industry in Canada.
Beavers are a whole lot safer nowadays and that’s a good thing, but those iconic Hudson’s Bay point blankets you can get today with the green, red, yellow, and indigo stripe are exactly the same as they were back in the 17th century. For many people they are what they envision first when someone mentions the Bay Canada. Right now the Bay is having its annual Bay Days sale online and in stores and people may be looking for a Bay Days sale code – you can get an extra 20% of with code: BAYDAYS but that’s not what we’re going to talk about here.
