One Great City!
The City of Winnipeg, located where the Red and Assiniboine Rivers meet, is recognized for its vibrant, multicultural community and diverse culture. The city, with a growing population of more than 766,000, is home to internationally renowned festivals, galleries and museums, the historic Exchange District and The Forks, and ever-expanding research, education, and business sectors. Notably, The Globe and Mail recently ranked Winnipeg as the 3rd most livable city in Canada in 2023. From the Hudson Bay waters, across the farmland fields, to the pulse of the cities and towns, The Province of Manitoba’s people and places - its 100,000 lakes, 92 provincial parks, winding river valleys and storied prairie skies - inspire.
The University of Manitoba is one of 15 Canadian public research universities known as the U15. These institutions undertake 80% of Canadian university research activities. Further, the University of Manitoba has an active neuroscience community, which includes the Manitoba Neuroscience Network (MNN). Finally, Winnipeg remains one of the most affordable major cities in the country.
