Red River Selkirk Settlement Bicentenary – 2012
The Bicentenary of the Red River Selkirk Settlement Committee was formed in 2011 with a mandate to bring together various organizations and levels of government to plan an appropriate commemoration for this historical milestone. Events were held throughout the year and included the launch of a commemorative stamp by Canada Post at historic Ross House, the first post office in Western Canada; an academic symposium at Dalnavert, displays at the Hudson’s Bay Company Archives and a special exhibit at the Manitoba Museum.
