Winnipeg is Manitoba’s vibrant capital city and is considered the gateway to Western Canada and the heart of the nation. The city has more than 6,000 years of history as a result of its significance as an Indigenous meeting place. From the 17th to 19th centuries, the area flourished as the hub of Canada’s fur trade and then later again as a key site of early railroad development. With a population of 776,900 (2020) culturally diverse people, Winnipeg is a four season destination with a cosmopolitan flair and warm, welcoming spirit.
