Portage la Prairie and area is a progressive community with an area population of approximately 20,000 inhabitants. Located in south central Manitoba on the picturesque Assiniboine River, Portage la Prairie is, and has always been an important transportation centre, dating back to its inception as a fur trading post. Today it is connected to the rest of Canada via the Trans-Canada Highway and Yellowhead Highway, with service from both major railroads, a trans-continental bus service, and via air through Southport Aerospace.
Our century-old Main Street is an architectural wonder, and remains the centre of our community's culture, heritage and commerce. Two blocks of historic brick buildings, many sharing a common wall with their neighbour, line both sides of Main Street. Plans have begun for an ambitious restoration project to take our Main Street back to its former glory. Recently, the area has been designated as Manitoba's only Heritage District, ensuring the preservation of this remarkable collection of buildings into the future.
Located in the sunny Pembina Valley of Manitoba, positioned in the centre of Canada and only five minutes from the US border, Altona is the perfect location to develop your business or establish your home.
