THE FUR TRADE
Bank of Canada Museum
30, Bank Street, Ottawa, (Québec), K1A 0G9
Can a beaver pelt be used as money? How does fur from the Canadian woods become a hat in fashionable Paris? Ask a Métis fur trapper and handle some of the genuine articles yourself. Join us for a fascinating Q&A session and ward off that cold with some hot cedar tea. Presented by the Bank of Canada Museum. Saturday and Sunday, February 17 and 18, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
