Thinking of Manitoba?
Welcome to all residents!
For most medical residents training at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg will be your home city for at least the next two to five years. For a minority of residents, especially those in the Family Medicine rural and northern programs, you may be based out of smaller sites such as Brandon or Dauphin.
Manitoba is very flat (it’s part of the prairies) and has over 100,000 lakes. Winnipeg is located in the southern end of the province, and is home to approximately 60% of the province’s population.
Summer is warm and sunny while winter tends to be cold and bright. Afternoon temperatures in July and August average 25?C while most midwinter days remain well below freezing. Wide variations from average values are possible in all seasons. Summer months herald over half of the annual precipitation with intermittent burst of showers. In the Southern parts of Manitoba, approximately 110-140 cm of snow falls annually. According to Environment Canada, Manitoba ranked first for clearest skies year round, and ranked second for clearest skies in the summer and for sunniest province in the winter and spring.
