Canadian Shack fics originated in Due South fandom, with characters often finding themselves isolated at a Canadian shack in DS fanfiction. This trope became more widely known after the 2001 multifandom challenge, 101 Ways To End Up In A Canadian Shack organized by Speranza.
Within Due South fandom, many of these works are set after the series finale, Call of the Wild, and involve Ray Kowalski and Benton Fraser "shacking up" in northern Canada (sometimes, but not always, literally in a shack). Many early works were referred to as "cabin fics" and it was likely the 2001 Challenge which popularized the term Canadian Shack.
