EDMONTON HOUSE JOURNAL 1821-1826

During the 1820s, Edmonton House re-emerged as the headquarters of a much larger Saskatchewan trading district of the Hudson's Bay Company. Its fur-gathering hinterland extended from the southern edges of the boreal forest near present-day Westlock, Alberta, south to the Missouri and Yellowstone Rivers, and from the confluence of the North and South Saskatchewan Rivers west to the Rocky Mountains - in short, it contained virtually all of what is now central and southern Alberta, and parts of Saskatchewan and Montana as well.

The principal clients who came to trade at Edmonton House were bands of the various First Nations who occupied these territories, including Cree, Blackfoot, Iroquois, Peigan, Sarcee, Stoney and Gros Ventre, and the growing population of Metis.
