St.

Catherines Metis Scrip Claims
St. Catherine’s Anglican church was located approximately seven kilometres west of the City of Prince Albert. St. Catherines is associated with early English Métis settlers in the Prince Albert area. The English Métis communities originated in the 1860s with the founding of the Isbister Settlement immediately west of the present city of Prince Albert. That community was named for James Isbister, an English Métis who freighted for the Hudson’s Bay Company at Fort Carlton in the 1850s, but had settled in this area by 1860. The Isbister Settlement became the nucleus for other English Métis who migrated from the Red River Settlement area of Manitoba following the Riel resistance of 1869-70. St. Catherine’s Anglican Church became a hub of activity in the community and is presently commemorated by a cairn featuring the remains of the original bell.
