Discover More Manitoba HistoryMonday, Jan 06, 2020 at 10:53am
May 2020 will mark 150 years since what is now Manitoba became Canada's fifth province, and we think this anniversary is a great opportunity to look back at different aspects of our province's history. To that end, the Community Classroom is pleased to present our Local History Series—ten classes between January and May that give you the opportunity to learn more about some of the diverse groups of people, stories and developments that made Manitoba what it is today.
