North American Van Lines: The Best of Portage la Prairie Moving Companies
Existing within the Central Plains region across Manitoba, the somewhat smaller scale city of Portage la Prairie features a population of roughly 13,000 and rests on the Assiniboine River—recent construction efforts have given way to a diversionary channel toward Lake Manitoba, putting an end to a long term pattern of flooding from the river that once routinely troubled the city.
Interestingly, Portage la Prairie manages to hold down the honor of being the sunniest city in all of Canada—the small city maintains the highest overall number of total sunny days throughout Canada’s warmer months.
It is generally believed that the very early history of Portage la Prairie was one of inhabitation by First Nations groups during the time leading up to the arrival of European settlers, who arrived around the middle of the 19th century. Within a few short decades of the arrival of European settlers, the fledgling settlement had given rise to a period of rapid growth and development, transforming what was once a trading post with the presence of a handful of outpost forts into a thriving agricultural community that quickly became home to a local newspaper, a community-wide fair, and more.
