As the hub of northern Manitoba and situated on the north basin of Lake Winnipeg, Norway House Cree Nation played a fundamental role in establishing the economic foundation of Manitoba and Canada during the fur trade era. Eventually, Norway House became a sub-depot for the collection of inland furs which were transported by Canoe through Lake Winnipeg, but mainly to York Factory which was the common destination of transported goods and furs during the fur trade era.
