A Walk Down Main Street

In this blog, you will find information on the growth of Winnipeg from the early 1900’s to present day. At one point, Winnipeg had the fastest growing population in the entire world. The Canadian Pacific Railway came to Canada in 1885 and Winnipeg in 1905, which started a 30 year growth period of urban development across the country. The railroads have greatly affected Winnipeg and continue to in 2014, especially with the creation of Union Station, allowing for steady transportation, cultural, and economic development.
