The city of Churchill, on Hudson Bay, is Canada’s most northerly deep-sea port. It is home to superb museums, with a priceless collection of Inuit carvings, and the restored massive stone fortress of Fort Prince of Wales National Historic Site and the York Factory National Historic Site. Just south of town is the world’s largest denning area for polar bears.
While manufacturing leads the economy of Manitoba, agriculture is nearly as important. Over one-third of the province’s farmland is used to grow wheat. Mining is of major importance as well, with the city of Flin Flon serving as the centre.
