Dauphin Trading House

North West Company
On my travels I have come in contact with numerous Aboriginal peoples and they have all had such great views on North West Company. They have shared that unlike Hudson's Bay Company, North West Company goes out and gets their own furs for trading. They also attempt at building relationships with the Aboriginals. Hudson's Bay Company expects their customers to come to them and have strict laws against European/Aboriginal reproduction.
North West Company is certainly the right choice for me because I have more freedom in setting up my post and also there are no rules against starting a family between the two cultures.
Location of Post
I will set up my post right along the coast for good transportation and all the natives are very close by so relationship building will be simple. I've been told that there are a few HBC posts set up in the area but they don't do very well because they mistreat the Aboriginals.
