What do perogies, ballet dancers, hockey players, and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights have in common? You can find them all in Winnipeg!
Winnipeg is a must-see as it’s full of excitement — and crazy hockey fans!

From vegan cuisine, breweries, French food, Japanese dishes, West Indian curry, and more.
On top of that, Winnipeg boasts an incredible array of cultural experiences, a strong arts scene, and a wordly focus.
