Nuvola apps kpdf.png Welcome to WikiProject Manitoba, a collaboration area and group of editors dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of Manitoba. This project is a child project of WikiProject Canada.

(For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProject and the Guide to WikiProjects).

Scope and Motivation Scope and Motivation[edit]

Our scope covers all Manitoba-related articles; this includes cities, flowers, animals, history figures, and other miscellaneous Manitoba content. For purposes of organization, all such articles should be included in the Category:Manitoba, or one of its subcategories.

  • Manitoba is nicknamed the "Gateway to the West", with the longitudinal centre of Canada located just west of Winnipeg at 96 degrees, 48 minutes, 35 seconds W.
  • Winnipeg, the capital of Manitoba, is home to The Forks, a national Historic site of Canada.
  • Manitoba has two official languages: English and French.
  • Manitoba was established as a province in 1870, making it one of the oldest provinces of Canada.
  • Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport is one of Canada's busiest airports for passenger traffic.


  1. All articles related to Manitoba in some way, whether it be a historical figure, a flower, or even an image should be tagged with {{WikiProject Canada |class= |importance= | mb=yes }} , the project banner. This identifies them as within our scope, and places them in to a category, to allow organization, and future improvement.
  2. Participants in the project should remain civil when communicating within the project.
  3. Be bold in editing articles, or templates related to the project. This is a wiki, so if someone doesn't like your change, they can just revert it back. It can't hurt!
  4. See also: Naming conventions

{{Infobox Settlement}} —All settlements in Manitoba should use {{Infobox Settlement}}. This infobox provides a consistent look between the various types settlements in Manitoba (such as Winnipeg) and settlements in the other parts of Canada like Toronto, Montreal, St. John's, and Edmonton. The default "settlement_type" is city, but it can be changed to reflect any type of settlement, like counties, towns, villages, etc. {{Infobox Settlement}} also has a super imposable dot map feature that allows a map to be used with any settlement in Manitoba.

There is now a locator map for Manitoba. For how to use, for size of button, text, caption etc. see {{Location map}}
