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.
