Name Notes: Roche Jacques honours Jacques Cardinal, a North West Company employee who provided horses for the fur traders. Sources are not clear on whether this is the same Jacques Cardinal after whom the Cardinal River is named. At any rate, Roche Jacques gave its name to Jacques Creek, Jacques Lake, and the Jacques Range, while the Cardinal River is the source of the names of Mount Cardinal and the Cardinal Divide.
