CIM Bulletin, 1946


RECENT developments in the Canadian Northwest in connection with war material requirements and post-war undertakings have focussed attention on this hitherto little known and remote section of Canada. Modern transportation improvements have made accessible an area of some 700,000 square miles, comprising the mainland portion of the Northwest Territories, so that any portion may be reached within twenty-four hours of railhead. In this area, which forms 20 per cent of the mainland portion of the Dominion of Canada, the two main industries, mining and trapping, are based on natural resources .
