Manitoba, one of the Prairie provinces of Canada, in the central part of the country, bounded on the North by the Northwest Territories, on the NE by the Hudson Bay, on the East by Ontario, on the South by the states of Minnesota and North Dakota, and on the West by Saskatchewan.

Manitoba entered the Canadian confederation on July 15, 1870, as the fifth province. Manitoba has traditionally been known for it's agricultural, mining, forestry, and fishing. It is one of the leading manufacturing areas of Canada, but still remains dominated by the processing of primary products. The name Manitoba is taken from Lake Manitoba, which is an Indian word meaning, "great spirit's strait." It is called the Keystone Province.
