MB 150 logo

As Manitoba reflects on 150 years as a province and looks forward to a new year, it is an opportunity to come together in spirit, to share stories, and to build even stronger connections to each other and the land. Our anniversary continues to inspire us to explore our past and leave legacies for the future.

Manitoba 150 exists to shine a light on all that makes Manitoba amazing and unique – our beauty, people, cultures, and history.

We encourage you to discover your Manitoba all over again and find a new reason to fall in love with our amazing province.

*Note: The safety of our citizens is paramount in the design of this program. The program may be adapted to adhere to the current day's Health Restrictions.
