Canada’s history is rich with tales of explorers, and the seafaring Captain James Cook (1728-1779) is one of the most storied of all!

This year marks the 240th anniversary of Cook’s arrival at the summer village of the Nuu-chah-nulth, at Nootka Sound, which led to increased international trade and exploration along Canada’s western shores.
