Welcome to Cochrane to Moose Factory & Moosonee
Moosonee and Moose Factory sit near the tundra line, and are as far north as most people ever get in eastern Canada. Expeditions further north will undoubtedly involve floatplanes, canoes, snowmobiles, dogsleds or snowshoes.
The railway reached Moosonee in 1932, about 30 years after it was established by Révillon Frères as a trading post. The neighboring island of Moose Factory is a small Cree settlement and the historic site of the Hudson's Bay Company trading hub founded in 1672.
