Council of Assiniboia
The Council of Assiniboia was, from 1821 until 1870, the appointed administrative body of Rupert's Land.
This Council was created by the Hudson's Bay Company to govern the territory following its merger with the North West Company, and the death of Lord Selkirk. Both the Protestant and Roman Catholic clergy were represented on the council, as were both Francophone, Métis, and Anglophone country borns. However, it was not a form of responsible government, since there were no elections, and the council was primarily composed of factors and traders of the Hudson's Bay Company.
