BIG City

Winnipeg – creative, intelligent, and culturally diverse.

The spirited capital city of Manitoba, Winnipeg is located at the geographical centre of North America. Richly steeped in history, Winnipeg’s multicultural birthplace is marked at the convergence of the Red and Assiniboine rivers, a meeting and trading centre for thousands of years, and now a green urban oasis known as The Forks.

Recognized as the 2010 Culture Capital of Canada, Winnipeg is a midsized city of over 750,000 culturally-diverse people, who bring a cosmopolitan, international flair to the city, as well as a warm, welcoming spirit. The city’s diverse cultural make-up shines brightly through its globally inspired cuisine, wide array of world-class arts, culture and festivals, and many one-of-a-kind shops and boutiques.

Situated near countless lakes and parks, Winnipeggers can experience the wonders of nature and breathtaking prairie scenery throughout each of the seasons.

Winnipeg is also home to great value. Residents have access to all of the typical big-city amenities, including three professional sports teams, numerous unique dining experiences, museums, theaters, and attractions, while enjoying a small-town cost of living, and affordable housing.

Winnipeg has one of the most diverse housing markets in Canada, ranging from new construction in one of many quickly growing new developments, to charming older homes surrounded by large trees in established neighborhoods.

The price of a home varies depending on the area of the city, but the average Winnipeg home sells for well below the national average. According to the Canadian Real Estate Association (2013), the average selling price of a single family home in Winnipeg is approximately $265,527, while the average home sells for $430,981 in Calgary, $776,945 in Vancouver and $521,992 in Toronto.
