Manitoba Lifestyle

Manitoba is located at the centre of Canada and North America, a country recognized worldwide as one of the best places to live.

Winnipeg, Manitoba's capital, is a cosmopolitan city offering urban amenities in a safe and welcoming environment. Other cities, like Brandon, Thompson, Selkirk and Portage la Prairie, offer the convenience of urban living in small, friendly communities. From the architecturally distinctive Exchange District of Winnipeg to smaller French communities to agricultural farming hamlets, blending traditional with the avant-garde – you will find a culturally rich mosaic.

Manitoba’s natural landscape is diverse, with magnificent forests and over 100,000 crystal clear lakes located in rugged wilderness to wide open prairie grain fields. Our provincial parks are home to abundant wildlife including bison, polar bears, beluga whales, beavers, elk and great horned owls to name but a few.
