While the current-day townsite of Mackenzie was developed in the late 1960s, the history of European settlement in the area goes back to the earliest fur trading posts.

The Northwest Company was trading furs with First Nations people and trappers during the early part of the 1800s. The Hudson's Bay Company moved into the area in the 1820s and established many successful trading posts.
