The Winnipeg River
Through the 20th century to the present day, the waters of the Winnipeg River have played, and will continue to play, a vital role in Manitoba’s economic and social well-being. First used by Indigenous peoples and early explorers for travel, the river’s powerful waters were later used to provide electricity to the growing province.
Today, 6 generating stations convert the waters’ energy into electrical energy, producing 583 MW.
