Situated in the heart of downtown Winnipeg, Gibraltar House is the home of The North West Company whose roots trace back to the European Fur Trade. Originally named the Hudson Bay House, Gibraltar House was established in 1913 as a warehouse for The Hudson Bay Company.
Today, as the hub for The North West Company’s Canadian retail operations, Gibraltar House continues its lively and vital role in Canada’s North and beyond.
Explore North West’s rich enterprising history and learn how the Company helped shape modern-day Canada through a brief guided tour of select work areas, paintings, artifacts, and Inuit Art collection.
