British Columbia - Documents - Frontier

Frontier

The frontier played an important role in shaping Canada's history, and there are many documents related to this period that are of historical significance. These documents include official records such as land surveys, settlement records, and treaties with Indigenous peoples, as well as personal diaries, letters, and journals of settlers and explorers. Many of these documents are housed in national and provincial archives and libraries, where they serve as important resources for researchers, historians, and the general public interested in learning about Canada's early history and the challenges and opportunities presented by the frontier. They provide valuable insights into the experiences of those who lived and worked on the frontier, as well as the relationships between Indigenous peoples and European settlers during this period.
