Norway House Metis Scrip Applications

Norway House and Rossville, Manitoba: Norway House and Rossville are Metis communities located where the Nelson River enters Little Playgreen Lake (north of Lake Winnipeg). This was a HBC fur trade post as well as a storage and transhipment depot during the heyday of the fur trade.

Present day Norway House is located 30 km (19 miles) north of Lake Winnipeg, on the bank of the eastern channel of Nelson River. In 1816 Lord Selkirk sent out a band of Norwegians to build a road from York Factory to Lake Winnipeg and a series of supply posts. They built Norway House at Mossy Point (west side of outflow) in 1817 replacing the former Jack River post 1 at that location.

Norway House is geographically situated on Little Playgreen Lake/East Nelson River Channel, the first lake chain system north of Lake Winnipeg. It was known as a centre for the building of York boats. The immediate hinterland area of Norway House generally includes the north shore of Lake Winnipeg, Playgreen Lake, Little Playgreen Lake, Whiskey Jack, and the Nelson River East Channel. The HBC built its first inland post in 1796 at Jack River House, near present day Norway House. This post was situated on what was then called Jack River now called the Gunisao River. It was built to appose the North West Company presence at the site and to protect the HBC’s inland transportation route. The HBC maintained a post at Norway House almost continuously from 1796 through the early 1900's and beyond.

In 1814, the Jack River post was closed and a new post, constructed by eight

  • 1 Jack River (1801 - 1814), a Hudson's Bay Co. post replaced by Norway House. In 1756, the HBC sent two men (Joseph Smith and Joseph Waggoner) inland from the Bay. They camped at the site termed Jack River, Jackfish River, and later Norway House. This was a stopping point before making the crossing westward over the northern end of Lake Winnipeg, to the mouth of the Saskatchewan River at Grand Rapids, thence on to Cumberland House.

Norwegian labourers, was located at Mossy Point [on the north shoreline of Lake Winnipeg just east of Warren’s Landing]. Just a few years later, in 1817, this post was moved to Warren’s Landing. This post was closed in 1824, and the HBC constructed a new Jack River Post on the East Channel of the Nelson River near the outlet of Gunisao River, in Norway House. In 1827, the post was moved again to a location on Little Playgreen Lake. Its last location was on the east channel of Nelson River at present day Norway House.

In 1825 or 1826 much of the post was destroyed by fire. In 1826 the Hudson’s Bay Company abandoned its position on Mossy Point in favour of its present position on the East River, or as it is now known, the Jack River in order to be nearer to the fishery, the food supply of its population. In 1830, Cumberland House, formerly the most important post in the interior, was supplanted by Norway House. From the 1830s, the Councils of the Hudson's Bay Company, (a gathering of the Chief Factors) met at Norway House rather than York Factory.
