[ Project Plans | Essential Questions | Knowledge Hunt | Glossary | Links ]

The North West Mounted Police were sent from Eastern Canada to monitor unruly whiskey traders, earn the trust of the First Nations peoples, and ensure Canadian sovereignty over the West. They faced many hardships on their trek west, but what they did upon arrival ensured that the NWMP would gradually come to be an enduring symbol of Canadian pride. The narratives of these Mavericks will facilitate student understanding of how the NWMP shaped the settlement and development of Western Canada.
