Who Was Simon Fraser?
Simon Fraser School was named for a fur trader and explorer who was born in 1776 and died in 1862. Simon Fraser was employed by the North West Company and in 1805 he was put in charge of the company's fur trading operations in central British Columbia. Between 1805 and 1807, Fraser built the first permanent settlement in British Columbia. Trying to find a safe canoe route to the Pacific, he and a party of 23 others set out in May 1808 to travel down the turbulent river which now bears his name. We are proud that Simon Fraser students show the same courage and spirit of adventure in pursuit of their goals.
