Hudson’s Bay Company, chartered on May 2,is the oldest commercial corporation in North America and is one of the oldest in the world. In its early days, it was headquartered in London, England and controlled the fur trade throughout much of British-controlled North America for several centuries.

There are scattered islands in Hudson Bay, mostly in the southeast, and also in James Bay, a smaller part of the larger bay. The islands within James Bay, as well as the Belcher Islands in Hudson Bay, are all considered a part of Canada's Nunavut Territory. Literally hundreds of rivers (many small) flow into the bay.

Some of the largest include. The Hudson's Bay Company strung a thin line of trading posts across the upper half of North America, which was all that kept out American annexationists pushing north.

The fur trade connected Britain and North America. This connection was originally made possible by wooden sailing vessels. Hudson's Bay Company (HBC) was founded after the voyage of the Nonsuch had demonstrated the commercial feasibility of sailing through Hudson Straits and into Hudson Bay in order to acquire furs.

Maritime voyages remained an important part of HBC's operations until. Arthur Dobbs, An account of the countries adjoining to Hudson’s Bay in the north-west part of America (London, ; repr.
