Winnipeg, Manitoba (the gateway to the West) lies on the eastern edge of the Canadian prairies. The capital and largest city of Manitoba is located close to the longitudinal centre of North America at the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine rivers. ‘The Forks’, as it is now known, was historically a canoe route junction, lending itself naturally as a point of trade long before European settlement.
