Charles Robin (1743-1825) was a remarkable man from St Aubin, in the British Island of Jersey. Charles spent nearly all of his working life in Canada, in the Gaspé. He established an international fishing business based on the cod-triangle, which continued trading for 240 years, until 2006. Charles' compnay was the second oldest Canadian business after the Hudson Bay company! He is regarded as a forgotten founding father of Canada; his legacy contributed to the colonization of the Gaspé and the accumulation of wealth in Jersey.
