About Manitoba 150

In 1870, Manitoba became Canada’s fifth province – the only to enter Confederation under Indigenous Leadership. The Manitoba 150 Host Committee Inc. (Manitoba 150) is an independent not-for-profit organization. Manitoba 150 exists to shine a light on all that makes Manitoba amazing and unique – our beauty, people, cultures, and history.

Manitoba is the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, Dakota, Ininew, Anishininiw, Dene, and Inuit, and is the homeland of the Métis. Its ongoing existence is thanks to these ancestors, and their present-day relatives, who continue to love and care for the land.

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.

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