The main theory is that Hudson Bay is where the last of the gigantic Laurentide Ice Sheet melted. The ground underneath was compressed for so long by so much pressure, it has yet to rebound to its former altitude. Measurements seem to point to this, as the whole area is still rising (also, the Baltic Sea in Europe is a similar remnant that is still rising).
