After lengthy and often difficult provincial-federal negotiations, the boundaries were extended in 1881 and 1884. In 1912 they were finally set at lat 49° to lat 60° N and long 101°30´-102° W to long 95° W, angling northeast at about 53° north on the eastern boundary. For 200 years the FUR TRADE dominated the area known as Rupert's Land. Settlement, particularly from eastern Canada and eastern Europe, eventually created a sound agricultural tradition. Postwar political and economic efforts have enabled the economy to diversify industry and develop primary resources, while maintaining agricultural strength.
