Canada

Many places in Canada which bear the name "Fort" were never military establishments. Many were simply stockades, log enclosures for fur trading posts of the Hudson's Bay Company or the North West Company. Many in the West were also originally police outposts setup to by the North West Mounted Police prior to European-Canadian settlement of the area. See also Category:Forts in Canada
