“Known for its friendly and welcoming spirit, Winnipeg is a diverse multicultural city with a rich and varied history. 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 of this small prairie town.” – Tourism Winnipeg
