The following is a temporary presentation of our latest exhibit, Manitoba 1870.

As the 150th anniversary marking the ratification of 1870’s Manitoba Act, June 24, 2020 is a significant date. The Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia, acting as provisional government, had been established to negotiate the conditions for entry of the Red-River Colony into Canadian Confederation, and its ratification of the Act was a noteworthy step in this process. This law, which came into effect on July 15, 1870, made Manitoba the fifth province to join Canada.
