The City of Fort Saskatchewan is well over 200 years old with its original industry being canoe building. In the late 1700’s, the North West Company and Hudson’s Bay Company arrived in the area and established the fur trade posts. This city is one of Alberta’s oldest Euro-Canadian communities, and the settlement grew and became an agricultural centre for the region. In 1904, Fort Saskatchewan became a town and in 1905 it celebrated the arrival of the Canadian Northern Railway. It then became a significant stop on the transcontinental line and a transportation hub for the fertile farming district in Alberta. (Photo: Edmontonsun)
