Where Is Winnipeg Located?

The capital city of the Canadian province of Manitoba, Winnipeg is located an hour south of both Lake Manitoba and Lake Winnipeg, 70 miles north of the Canada and United States border. The 2,000 square mile metropolitan area is home to a population of less than 800,000 people.

What Is Winnipeg Known For?

Winnipeg’s topography is flat as it lies in a wide river valley, found at the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers, known as “The Forks.” This swath of Canada is known as the Prairie Provinces in conjunction with Alberta and Saskatchewan. Winnipeg is as diverse, tolerant, and friendly as one might expect in any Canadian city. There are 100 languages spoken in Winnipeg, with Filipino Tagalog being the second most common language after English; while the French-speaking population is the largest west of Ontario. While many people don’t choose Winnipeg as a holiday destination, visitors might be surprised to find a wealth of culture, entertainment, history, sports events, festivals, and shopping all within close proximity to expansive nature.

A Quick Guide to Winnipeg

  • Canadian Royal Mint: All Canadian coins are produced in Winnipeg’s Canadian Royal Mint, in addition to those for 60 other world governments. The guided tour takes just under an hour. Plus, there is a museum and boutique to purchase a unique souvenir.
  • St. Boniface Basilica: The 100-year old facade of St. Boniface Basilica has been included in the redesigned and rebuilt Catholic cathedral after the original was mostly lost to a fire in 1968. The rose window, which remains vacant, perfectly frames the sky. The basilica remains the primary church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Manitoba and is located downtown facing the Red River.
  • Canadian Museum for Human Rights: The first museum dedicated to the evolution and future of human rights, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is housed in a contemporary building with a wrapped and layered glass facade. Visiting this museum results in an immersive experience that’s meant to sensitively evoke inspiration and conversation.
  • Esplanade Riel: A cable-stayed pedestrian bridge connecting downtown Winnipeg to St. Boniface, Esplanade Riel stands out gleaming white on the city’s skyline and is the only bridge in North America that includes a restaurant in the center.
  • Winnipeg Walkway: Winnipeg Walkway consists of a network of more than 14 skyways and seven tunnels, connecting 38 buildings in downtown Winnipeg, built to protect its pedestrians from weather and traffic. Another separate and unconnected network in the Civic Centre district connects the three buildings of Civic Centre to the four buildings of Manitoba Centennial Centre.

  • Grand Beach Provincial Park: One hour northeast of the city center on the southern shores of the Lake Winnipeg lies a little village and state beach with white sand beaches and grassy dunes. At Grand Beach Provincial Park, you can swim, hike, windsurf, or camp. There is much to do in the park and plenty of places to eat and stay in the neighboring twin towns of Grand Beach and Grand Marais.
  • Churchill & The Northern Lights: At the most northern edge of Manitoba on Hudson Bay is a little community that is famous for being one of the top three places in the world to see the Northern Lights. Though remote, the Churchill area is served by the regional Churchill Airport. The peak season for seeing the Northern Lights is January through March, but there is a possibility of seeing some light activity 300 days per year, in addition to polar bears in the fall and beluga whales in the summer. There is a Tundra Buggy Tour operator to see it all from the safety and warmth of a reinforced, elevated vehicle.
