Fort Frances, Ontario, Canada

Fort Frances, Ontario, incorporated as a town in 1903... The Town of Fort Frances is located in northwestern Ontario at the west end of RAINY LAKE, where it drains into Rainy River. The river forms the boundary with the US, and Fort Frances is linked by a bridge to International Falls, Minnesota. Located along the traditional canoe route to the western fur country, it was the site of Fort Saint-Pierre, which was constructed in 1731 by La Jemerais, LA VÉRENDRYE's nephew.

The date of the establishment of Fort Lac La Pluie has not been determined, but it was used by the NORTH WEST CO after its establishment in 1776. Subsequently the HUDSON'S BAY CO also established a post, which was named Fort Frances after the wife of the HBC governor, Sir George SIMPSON.
