A trusted resource to an engaged business community.


In 1896, Frank Hanna, one of Trail’s founding fathers, assembled a meeting consisting of 45 people. The result of that meeting was a decision to continue to meet every Monday night on, “Matters pertaining to the health of the City and its protection from fire”. The Board of Trade, as it was then known, was finally registered on December 11, 1900.
