Northern Saskatchewan and the fur trade
Arrowsmith, William Alfred
This study deals with the fur trade of the Province of Saskatchewan, and more particularly the northern part of the province, in the period since the Second World War. Great changes have occurred in the demand for, and supply of, furs during this time, necessitating corresponding adjustments in the economic and social structure of the region. As many of the variables making for change are exogenous from the Saskatchewan viewpoint and because in addition the raw fur market is essentially international in character, limitation of the study to the provincial scene by disregarding pertinent factors elsewhere would be unrealistic in the extreme. For theses reasons the discussion will encompass a wider field than might initially appear warranted.
