Manitoba is the sixth-largest province in Canada at 649,950 square kilometers (or 250,947 square miles). The province has over 100,000 lakes and has a largely continental climate. Winnipeg is a dynamic city of nearly 700,000 people.
Manitoba's landscape is extremely diverse. The south-western portion of Manitoba is prairie, with farmland and flat, open fields as far as the eye can see. The most northern area of Manitoba features an expanse of tundra, which is relatively flat as well. The rest of the province is dominated by the Canadian Shield, a rocky, tree-rich geography with breathtaking lakes, hills and cliffs.
Called the polar bear capital of the world, Churchill is also known as a beluga whale watching hotspot, a birder’s paradise, and one of the best places to experience the northern lights. Don’t miss out on the local history and the outstanding cuisine.
Located minutes from downtown Winnipeg and airport areas, Assiniboine Park Zoo provides visitors with the opportunity to interact with nearly 200 animal species from all corners of the globe. Open year-round, with over 80 park-like acres to explore. The award-winning Journey to Churchill is home to polar bears, muskoxen, Arctic fox, wolves and other northern species. It is the most comprehensive exhibit of its kind in the world.
Saskatchewan is located in the heart of North America bordering Montana and North Dakota to the south, Manitoba to the east, Alberta to the west and the North West Territories to the north. The Capital city is Regina, however the largest city is Saskatoon with a population of 310,195.
The name Saskatchewan comes from the Plains First Nation word “kisiskatchewan” which means the river that flows swiftly. The province is twice the size of Germany, and has almost 100,000 lakes and rivers, and close to 12 million acres of national and provincial parkland.
Regina is home of Canada’s only training academy for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) recruits. Grasslands National Park preserves some of the last untouched prairie left in North America.
Agriculture is big business in Saskatchewan. Almost half of Canada's total cultivated farmland is in Saskatchewan and we export globally 65% of the world's lentils, 54% of the world's peas, 34% of the world's durum wheat and 27% of the world's mustard seed. While Saskatchewan will always be synonymous with wheat, the province's farm economy has diversified in a myriad of directions since the early 20th century. From barley to berries, apples to alpacas, you'll be amazed by the bounty produced by local farmers.Request Callback Make Online Enquiry
