Overview

Victoria Settlement brings to life three major themes in Alberta's history: missionary activity, fur trade and settlement. Discover history on the North Saskatchewan River along the Victoria Trail where Reverend George McDougall founded a Methodist Mission to the Cree in 1862. This is where the Hudson's Bay Company established Fort Victoria in 1864 to trade with local indigenous people. The Mission and Fort became the nucleus for a Métis community whose river lots extended 9.7 km (6 miles) along the bank of the river.
