Though Canada was founded in 1867, the roots of our region trace back to the dawn of man. Ours is a storied past filled with thriving indigenous communities, intrepid explorers, and the inevitable march of progress and industry into our unique boreal region. From downing giant bears to guarding Nazi POWs, our true northern tales rival those of any Jack London novel. This interactive timeline is a work in progress, and is designed to chronicle some of the key events that have shaped the course of Lesser Slave River's history.
