Manitoba

Manitoba is one of the ten provinces that, along with the three territories, make up the thirteen federal entities of Canada. Its capital and most populous city is Winnipeg. It is located in the center of the country, bordering the northwest with the Northwest Territories, the north with Nunavut, the northeast with Hudson Bay, the east with Ontario, the south with the United States and the west with Saskatchewan. The province has an area of ​​649,950 km² in which prairies and a continental climate predominate, with thousands of lakes and many rivers. The economy of the territory is based on the agriculture that is practiced in the fertile zones of the south and the west of the province.

Other important economic sectors are transport, manufacturing, mining, forestry, energy and tourism. The capital and largest city of Manitoba is Winnipeg, eighth city of Canada in population and home to 60% of the inhabitants of the province. Winnipeg is the seat of the provincial government and in it are the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba and the Court of Appeal of Manitoba, which is the highest judicial body. Four of the five universities in Manitoba, their professional sports teams and most cultural activities are in Winnipeg. The fur traders first came to the territory of present-day Manitoba at the end of the 17th century and the area became the heart of Rupert Land, owned by the Hudson's Bay Company. Manitoba reached the category of province of Canada in 1870, after the Red River Rebellion.

In 1919 a general strike took place in Winnipeg and shortly after the region was affected by the economic crisis known as the Great Depression. These events led to the creation of what would eventually become the New Democratic Party of Manitoba, one of the main political parties in the province. Its current Prime Minister is Brian Pallister, a member of the Conservative Progressive Party of Manitoba.
