The Fullerton outpost establish 1901, was a year round presence of the first Royal Northwest Mounted Police, in attempt to established sovereignty by the Federal Government, with activities of the American whalers turn of the twentieth century. The Cape Fullerton RNWMP post was set up, mainly to serve as a customs post for activities of the American whalers, and to administer whaling licences, collect customs, control the flow of liquor, and to maintain order. The Fullerton harbour was a popular wintering station for American and Scottish whaling ships, and trading point between Inuit, and American and Scottish whalers. The Depot Island was also an anchor harbour during open water season, or winter Station with early Explorers, or Whalers. This followed fur-pelt trade post of the Hudson’s Bay Company est. 1911, R.C. Mission est. 1912, and the Grey Nuns of Nicolet, Quebec est. 1930’s in Chesterfield post. When whaling declined, RNWMP barracks moved to Chesterfield Inlet, and Fullerton outpost was used only part time by Mounties, as a stop on patrols to remote Inuit camps, or other outposts along coastal areas, and inland with RNWMP Inuit Guides on dog team, boat or canoe.
