The province of Manitoba is located in the centre of Canada and is actually at North America’s geographic centre, bordered by Saskatchewan to the west, Ontario to the east, Nunavut to the north, and to the south by North Dakota and Minnesota. Its landscape is made up of rich agricultural soil as well as prairie grassland in the south, Precambrian Shield rock structures, lakes and forests to the east and north, which eventually give way to the arctic coastline and tundra in the extreme north.
Just 104 kilometres north of the US border, we find the capital city of Winnipeg, a city of approximately 730,000 people with a rich history based on the early explorers, periods of high immigration and a cultural diversity that makes it truly a unique place to visit. It is indeed one of the friendliest places on earth.
Summer offers a variety of opportunities to enjoy our great expanse of unspoilt nature, some of the greatest fishing experiences and numerous festivals and events. There is also a variety of cultural and historical attractions and events throughout the province and the city. Autumn brings beautiful colours to our foliage and is known for the polar bear migration in Churchill in northern Manitoba, one of the only places in the world where you can view polar bears in the wild. And winter brings many outdoor activities such as skiing, tubing, sledding and ice-fishing, not to mention western Canada’s largest winter festival which takes place each February.
