Eastmain - “Capital” of Eastern James Bay
Inlanders flocked to the Hudson’s Bay Company’s (HBC) trading post at Eastmain between 1775 and 1790 - Eastmain’s heyday - because the HBC had greatly improved its standard of trade.
Before that most inlanders preferred getting their supplies from traders from New France. Then, in 1793, many abandoned Eastmain for the newly-opened HBC post at Neoskweskau.
Others returned to the traders from Quebec City and Montreal who continued to be active inland.
