Founded on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of the founding of The Hudson’s Bay Company, The Beaver has been in continuous circulation for nearly a century. Initially meant as an internal publication of HBC, it was eventually made available to the general public, with a price of one dollar for an annual subscription. Pioneering the documentation of the Canadian Arctic, The Beaver covered a wide range of topics ranging from indigenous culture, travel, trade, historical and photographic essays as well as advertising a host of products offered by HBC. An essential addition to any Canadian history collection.
