HBC History Foundation
In 1994, HBC donated the Hudson’s Bay Company Archives to the Provincial Archives of Manitoba and the Hudson’s Bay Company Museum Collection to the Manitoba Museum. Together, the two collections were valued at approximately $68 million.
With the tax savings realized by the donations, the Company established the HBC History Foundation (HBCHF) to provide operating funds for the continued maintenance of these two collections in perpetuity.
The Foundation also supports other specific projects related to HBC history, such as the HBC Education Program, which provides free resources for teachers and their students. Please refer to the mandate for more information.
