History B Furs Fur farming began on Prince Edward Island in the 1880s, when two enterprising men, Charles Dalton and Robert Oulton, began to raise silver foxes. Silver fox fur immediately became popular and commanded high prices on the market. Fashion then changed, and the popularity of silver fox declined in the 1930s. Breeders turned to mink in the second half of the 20th century, while demand for fox revived in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Today the most valuable ranch-raised fur is mink, followed by fox.

Extractions: Site Map ... Prince Edward Island One of the four Atlantic Provinces, Prince Edward Island is Canada's smallest province in both area and population. With a length of 224 kilometres and width that ranges from 6 to 64 kilometres for a total area 5,660 square kilometres, the island lies in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, separated from Nova Scotia and New Brunswick by the Northumberland Strait. Prince Edward Island was originally called "Abegweit" by the Micmac Indians, who lived there for some 2,000 years before the arrival of the Europeans. It was discovered by Jacques Cartier in 1534, who described it as "the most beautiful stretch of land imaginable." It was a long time before Prince Edward Island was settled. No permanent colony existed until the French established one in 1719. The British later controlled the island and renamed it in honour of Prince Edward of England. Prince Edward Island is known as the cradle of Confederation, since its capital city of Charlottetown, was the site of the 1864 conference that set Canadian Confederation in motion. Nonetheless, the island did not join the Dominion of Canada until 1873.

Extractions: Prince Edward Island Prince Edward Islands Celtic heritage is still very much alive, underlying many tourism and holiday-related events. This significant presence is due in large part to the fact that, in the early nineteenth century, people of Scottish origin comprised the vast majority of the colonys population. They eventually settled across the Island, but were concentrated primarily along the north shore from Malpeque Bay to East Point and throughout Kings County and Eastern Queens County. Most of Prince Edward Islands Scottish population came from the Highlands, Gaelic speakers who spoke little English. The Highlands were in a state of economic and social upheaval after the Battle of Culloden at the turn of the nineteenth century. These hardships, together with the highland clearances, religious discrimination against Catholics, a general population increase, and the exciting tales of life in America were more than sufficient to motivate Highland Scots to emigrate to the New World. Upon arriving on the Island, the Highlanders had no capital with which to buy land and found themselves entangled in the land question that has marked Island history. While under British rule, the Island was divided into lots owned primarily by absentee landlords who, in the majority of cases, made no effort to develop their land or foster decent and just relations with their tenant-farmers. On the other hand, the Lowland Scots, relatively few in number, enjoyed a more favourable fate than their Highland cousins did. Coming to the Island primarily from Glasgow or Greenock, they benefited from an economic and social status on par with the English.
