Scope and Content 


Series consists of files regarding Hudson's Bay Company employees who received pensions under the 1903, 1920 (Fur Trade), and 1945 retirement schemes, those in receipt of grants or retirement allowances, and retired employees and their dependants in whom the Canadian Committee took an interest. Files may contain a form known as the "Annual Report on the Welfare of Retired Employees," and there are two files with related photographs. Files are arranged alphabetically.

The series is similar to the "Ex long service employees files series," except that there is much more material on each employee in this series. The files often include records of service and other sources of information about an employee's career. The department(s) in which the employee worked have been indicated in the file list.

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.




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