Historical

An aboriginal trading centre prior to the arrival of the Europeans, Winnipeg was at the heart of the country’s fur trade and instrumental in developing Canada’s gateway to the west. Home to a grain exchange that once rivaled the largest markets in the world, Winnipeg’s architecture and neighbourhoods reflect the profound character and history of this prairie town. Tour The Forks, a gathering place for 6,000 years and stroll through St. Boniface, the seat of Louis Riel’s famous rebellion more than 100 years ago.
