This paper reviews the evidence and history of glacier fluctuations during the Little Ice Age (LIA) in the Canadian Rockies. Episodes of synchronous glacier advance occurred in the 12th-13th, early 18th and throughout the 19th centuries. The glacier fluctuation record does not contain a simple climate signal : it is a complex response to several interacting factors that operate at different timescales. This suggests that simplistic concepts of climate over this period should be abandoned and replaced with more realistic records based on continuous proxy data series. The use of the term LIA should be restricted to describing a period of extended glacier cover
