Manitoba Great Lakes Program

For Manitoba, an abundance of clean, reliable freshwater is the centerpiece to the province’s economic and social infrastructure. From clean drinking water and agricultural irrigation to hydroelectric power and recreational activities, the very identity of Manitoba is built upon its fresh water supply.

With a combined area of 34,508 km2, Lakes Winnipeg, Manitoba, and Winnipegosis make up nearly 5.5% of the total land area of the province and act as major waterways in the Hudson Bay watershed, one of the largest watersheds in North America, draining water from as far west as the Rockies and as far east as Quebec into Hudson Bay
