Looking for Canadian Resources to explore.

I am looking for resources in Canada that will help me find a Ship Captain that moved logs along the Trent River in Ontario Canada between 1840 and 1850.  Any suggestions?

Not sure, but it seems to me that resources for Great Lakes shipping might cover the Trent River: http://images.maritimehistoryofthegreatlakes.ca/79706/data?grd=118

My first 'go to .." for research in Canada is the national Library and Archives Canada site - all census records, ships passenger records, border crossings, etc. are available there for free.  The local Trent sources are also great, hope you found what you were looking for.
Thank you Anonymous. The NLA for Canada was indeed the first place that was tried and then the question came in for additional places to look.
