  • This site is based on an exhibition which "concentrates on those aspects of the settlement process that are documented in the collections of the National Archives of Canada. The intent is to give a general impression of the nature, variety, and vastness of the records that relate to western Canada, and in doing so, show how these records might be used by researchers. The exhibition also serves as a gateway to the large-scale digitization of selected holdings on the West that the National Archives has recently undertaken, and will undertake in the future." Also available in French.
