Manitoba - Statistics & Facts

The Canadian province of Manitoba is one of the three Prairie provinces, located between Ontario and Saskatchewan, underneath Nunavut, and above the U.S. states North Dakota and Minnesota. Manitoba is home to about 1.38 million people, with more than half living in large urban areas, and is Canada’s fifth-largest province by population. Additionally, approximately 130,000 Aboriginal people reside in Manitoba, the fourth-highest amount in Canada. Most residents reported being of British Isles origin, and the province has seen a slight increase in the number of immigrants over the past couple of years. The largest city and capital of Manitoba is Winnipeg, home to half the population of the province, and Canada’s seventh-largest city. Manitoba is made up of over 100,000 lakes, including Lake Winnipeg, the tenth-largest freshwater lake in the world.

The economy of Manitoba

Manitoba’s economy is established largely on natural resources as a result of having a lot of fertile land. Other essential industries include manufacturing, mining, and transportation, however, the most lucrative industry in 2020 was the real estate industry. The province's overall GDP has been steadily increasing over the years (except for 2020), while the unemployment rate has been fluctuating. However, in 2020, Manitoba had one of the lowest unemployment rates out of all provinces in Canada.

Tourism in the province

Tourism also plays an essential role in Manitoba’s economy. Tourist attractions include the polar bears of Churchill, Riding Mountain National Park, the Forks, and Wapusk National Park. Although it increased slightly again in 2020, as successive relaxations of sanitary measures took place, the number of visitors to national historic sights had decreased significantly between 2017/18 and 2018/19, as sights such as The Forks saw a drastic decrease in the number of tourists. Riding Mountain National Park saw a slight decrease in the number of tourists, while Wapusk National Park saw a significant increase in tourism. In the town of Churchill, polar bears move from the inland to the water to hunt for seals during the Fall season. This attracts many tourists who can see the polar bears up close from tundra buggies. Furthermore, in Churchill, due to its high location, it is possible to see the Northern Lights in winter.
