Looking for GIS jobs in Manitoba? Manitoba has a moderately to strong economy based largely on agriculture, natural resources and the largest employers are typically government, crown corporations, hospitals and universities. The geomatics sector in Manitoba has been strong over the past decade offering a wide range of geospatial related jobs.
Since starting our Open Data Resources list in 2010, we have received thousands of requests to help people find various Canadian data to use with their geospatial projects. And in that time have started an unofficial list of places where LiDAR data that is available for the public to use.
Today we are making our list available to our readers in the hopes that more people can make use if this data and that the geospatial community might help add more sources to it.
If you are looking for Manitoba Historical Maps then you will want to check out the 1000+ maps of Winnipeg, Brandon and other regions of Manitoba that are now scanned and available online.
Canada is certainly not an old country when compared to many others like France or the UK but it has been around long enough to have some very interesting history.
Here are some historic aerial images of major cities in Canada. It is interesting when you compare some of these with modern maps and aerial images, as then you can get a real appreciation on what urban sprawl looks like and how cities develop and spread over time.
The Association of Canadian Map Libraries and Archives (ACMLA) provide a service where you can obtain your own colour printed reproduction of any of the listed images below [note: the images that the links below point to are actually only thumbnails of the actual images that they repoduce]. Maps ordered are printed on acid free 70 lb paper with a size of about 55 X 70 cm. For more information about how to order historic map prints go to the ACMLA site

Event: GeoManitoba 2012
Date: September 30 to October 3, 2012
Venue: Fairmont Hotel downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba
Manitoba is not often considered a hot bed for GIS in Canada but it certainly has shown some increased potential lately as this is the second Geomatics related (Although it may be more Geotechnical based then then Geomatics) event submitted to the site this summer about events scheduled to take place in Manitoba latter this year.
The Canadian Geotechnical Society (CGS) and the Manitoba Section of the CGS are planning their 65th Canadian Geotechnical Conference witch will take place September 30 to October 3, 2012 at the Fairmont Hotel in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
The theme of GeoManitoba 2012 will focus on building on the success of past conferences, reflecting the heritage of geotechnical engineering in Canada and how history will help Geomatics going forward into the future. They also plan to address the ever increasing need to restore and upgrade Canada’s aging infrastructure.

If you are a student, facility or someone who has any more knowledge, feedback or comments to share about the GIS Technologies Diploma program then I encourage you to share it . You can either use the contribute more info form or the comment functionality below.
Our Company Directory contains basic information about the various Geomatics related companies found in and around Canada (with some from abroad) including many key aspects such as the companies basic info, contact info, web site info and geographic location. This section and our data base will continue to evolve over time as more companies are added.[If your GIS company is not listed in our directory then you should contact us with your details because our basic listings are free for Canadian GIS related companies, or if you want your GIS company to stand out from the rest then we can make that happen for you too.]
To find a Company listing, simply select a province from the list below to find a Geomatics related company in that region, or use any of simple search tools on our site that will allow you to search by company names, Cities or postal code.
[Company info is added often, so if you do not find what you are looking for then we suggest you check back again later, or if you know of some GIS info that we should post, then do share it with us]
