Other Information

Likely named for the nearby community of Boyer, Boyer River, or the Boyer First Nation (164). Charles Boyer was a Northwest Company trader in the late 18th century described as being ‘very fit for the Peace Country’.

The Boyer River meanders to the north of the site but does not flow through it. A former channel is in the north most portion of the PNT.
