Custodial History 

 

Records of the Canadian Committee were kept at Hudson's Bay House in Winnipeg, where the Canadian Committee Office was located until its dissolution in 1970. From 1975 to 1987, records formerly maintained by the committee, and no longer of use to the Winnipeg head office, were transferred regularly to the Hudson's Bay Company Archives where they were held on deposit. In 1994, the HBC donated its records to the Province of Manitoba to be maintained permanently by the Archives of Manitoba.

 

Notes 

 

Provenance of records in this series prior to 1912, the date of the Canadian Committee's formation, is not known.

The series contains files on some employees also found in the "Ex long service Hudson's Bay Company employees individual files" series.
