Fort La Reine, one of the forts of the Pierre Gaultier de Varennes et de la VĂ©rendrye western expansion, was built in 1738. It was located on the Assiniboine River where present day Portage La Prairiemarker stands. It served as a fur trading post and was the base of operations for much exploration north and west. From Fort La Reine, the explorers made their way onto Lake Manitobamarker and Lake Winnipegosismarker, Lake Winnipegmarker and the Saskatchewan River.

Fort Dauphin, Fort Bourbon, Fort Paskoya, and Fort de la Corne all resulted from exploration carried out from this location by Louis-Joseph Gaultier de La VĂ©rendrye, the youngest La Verendrye son.
