Known for its friendly and welcoming spirit, Winnipeg is a diverse multicultural city with a rich and varied history. An aboriginal trading centre prior to the arrival of the Europeans, Winnipeg was at the heart of the countryâ€™s fur trade and instrumental in developing Canadaâ€™s gateway to the west. Home to a grain exchange that once rivalled the largest markets in the world, Winnipegâ€™s architecture and neighbourhoods reflect the profound character of this small prairie town. Over the last decades, Winnipeg has developed into a cosmopolitan city complete with top-notch restaurants, swanky boutiques, exciting attractions and an arts and culture scene that bursts with talent and originality.
