Provincial Trunk Highway 6 (PTH 6) is a provincial primary highway located in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It runs from the Perimeter Highway of Winnipeg to the Thompson south city limits. It is also the main highway connecting Winnipeg to northern Manitoba. The speed limit is 100 km/h. The route is also used to deliver nickel from the Thompson mine to the Royal Canadian Mint in Winnipeg. The portion of the highway between Ponton and Thompson was previously known as Highway 391.

There have been talks of extending PTH 6 North to Churchill and the Nunavut border. If plans to make a highway in Nunavut connecting from Churchill, and Arviat, Nunavut to Chesterfield Inlet, Nunavut go through, then the first ever major road connection to Nunavut will be made.[citation needed]

Route History[edit]

PTH 6 was designated in 1928 from Minnedosa to the Saskatchewan border southwest of Benito. In 1938-1939, the section east of Swan River became part of PTH 10. In 1947, the remainder was renumbered as PTH 31, and the current PTH 6 was designated.
