Francis Carmichael Bruce was one of the original Investors in the Bell Farm. The "Canada Gazette" for March 1882 (p. 1615), lists the men involved with incorporating the Qu'Appelle Valley Farming Company. F.C. Bruce is one of the provisional directors. However, his name is absent from the subsequent 1884 list of elected Directors, which could mean that he lost heart or was unable to come up with the financial resources needed to remain with the Company.

His occupation as a seedsman in Hamilton would have been particularly appropriate in light of the proposed agricultural business of the new Company.
