Manitoba (MB) is one of the ten provinces of Canada, the easternmost of the three prairie provinces and positioned in the center of the country. Manitoba is bordered by the provinces of Ontario to the east and Saskatchewan to the west, the territories of Nunavut and Northwest Territories to the north, and the US states of North Dakota and Minnesota to the south. It was brought into Canada as a province in 1870.
Agricultural land in the southwest, the Precambrian Shield to the north and in the northernmost area of Manitoba you'll find tundra and permafrost (permanently frozen subsoil). Manitoba has over 100,000 lakes and all waters in Manitoba flow to Hudson Bay.
Manitoba has been a multicultural society since its original population, the First Nations peoples. Over hundreds of years, immigrants have come from across the world to settle and live in Manitoba, providing a wide infusion of cultures. Manitoba's stable and diverse economy is built on resource sectors such as agriculture, forestry, minerals and fisheries. Emerging high-technology industries are also the base for the thriving business community.
