*"Manitoba" is a Cree name meaning "the place where the spirit (manitou) speaks." It is the home of over a million people (1,177,600 in 2005). Winnipeg is the largest city. About 706,900 people live there. Manitoba is home to many Metis and other native peoples.
 
*Manitoba was very sparsely populated prior to the late 1870s, when the Government of Canada opened it for settlement.
 
*Given the nickname "the Postage Stamp province", Manitoba was a 130 mile by 110 mile rectangle when it was officially established in 1870. Today, this most eastern of the prairie provinces has expanded to 18 times its original size and is more respectfully referred to as "the Keystone province".
