Churchill River

Churchill River rises in lat. 55° N. between the Saskatchewan and the Athabasca, and after a N.E. course of 1,000 miles under different names, through a series of lakes, enters Hudson's Bay, near Fort Churchill. Much canoe traffic takes place in the summer, and many portages are made necessary by the numerous rapids. The harbour is a likely terminus for the Lake Winnipeg railway on the direct Canadian sea-route to England.
