More About The City

About Winnipeg, MB

Manitoba's capital, rising from the prairies of western Canada, is a bustling city with a metropolitan population of about 600,000. Although today it is more sophisticated metropolis than pioneer outpost, the city has been a gathering place for thousands of years. Aboriginal peoples gathered at the Forks the meeting point of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers to trade and hold celebrations. Then, as Hudson's Bay fur traders moved west across Canada in the 1700s, the confluence became a convenient commercial centre, and the city slowly became a permanent settlement. Nowadays, the city's location near the geographic center of North America makes it a major player in shipping and transportation. People still meet at the Forks, but now they dine and shop in the historic Forks Public Market.
Winnipeg, MB Factoid
Winnipeg is well known for producing some wonderfully talented musicians. The Guess Who, Bachman Turner Overdrive, Crash Test Dummies and The Weakerthans were all formed by Winnipeggers. Neil Young and Chantal Kreviazuk also hail from the windy city of the north.
