A visit to Manitoba means travelling through Treaty 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 Territory and through communities who are signatories to Treaties 6 and 10. It encompasses the original lands of the Anishinaabeg, Anish-Ininiwak, Dakota, Dene, Ininiwak and Nehethowuk and the homeland of the Métis.
Manitoba's ongoing existence is thanks to Indigenous ancestors and their present-day relatives, who continue to love and care for the land.
Acknowledging these original caretakers is a reminder of our unique heritage, our important relationships, and our obligations to and shared responsibilities with Indigenous peoples.
Manitoba is located at the longitudinal centre of Canada and is home to 1.2 million people
