Canada’s Original Boomtown

For generations, the meeting points of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers were important meeting places for all the Anishinaabeg, Anishininewuk, Dakota Oyate, Denesuline and Nehethowuk First Nations. Today, meetings in Winnipeg are more likely to be related to digital industries, as the sector is experiencing a boom in Manitoba’s capital city. (sourceicons.external-link-icon)

Canada’s Cultural Cradle

To and from Winnipeg

Located roughly in the centre of the country, Winnipeg makes for a natural meeting point. Once here, show your delegates Whiteshell Provincial Park and the rocky Canadian Shield, which isn’t at all like the prairie flatlands you’d expect. Alternatively, run a team-building program at Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site where the seven chiefs of the Ojibwe and Swampy Cree First Nations helped create modern Manitoba.

In Winnipeg

Discover the architectural wonder of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and explore the trendy Exchange District where Winnipeg’s heritage buildings now house hip boutiques and eateries. Vibrant Indigenous cultures also enrich this city with the world’s largest collection of contemporary Inuit art and a new Diversity Garden that celebrates humanity’s relationship to the land partly through an Indigenous lens.

Advanced manufacturing, aerospace, agribusiness and digital industries are four key economic drivers in Winnipeg. A fifth is the creative industry that is respected by artists from every discipline. Winnipeg has churned out a disproportional number of writers and performers. It's also become a global centre for new media, animation and special effects, interactive games and audio/visual production. (sourceicons.external-link-icon)
