Hudson's Bay Company logo

Hudson's Bay Company

In 1994, the Hudson's Bay Company donated its corporate archives to the then-named Provincial Archives of Manitoba, and its museum collection to The Manitoba Museum, both public institutions. These gifts earned a substantial tax saving, most of which was put to work in the name of history by establishing the Hudson's Bay Company History Foundation. The Foundation, in turn, provides core funding to ensure the maintenance of the Company's gifts and to support the initiatives of Canada's History. In 2011, they contributed $250,000 to Canada's History Society.
