This guide will help you find material in Vancouver Public Library on the Fur Trade in Canada. The Fur Trade was a very important part of the Canadian economy and from the 17th to 19th centuries attracted European mechants and settlers to Canada.  Material on this subject can be found throughout the Central Library (350 West Georgia Street). Please ask the Information staff if you need help.
