Situated in the beautiful boreal forest off northern Manitoba, Thompson is a city of many experiences. Located 730 kms north of the provincial capital of Winnipeg, it is the home of Mystery country where historically aboriginal peoples have lived and hunted for centuries. The beautify of its pristine rivers and lakes is evident from the air making way for endless recreational activities for all ages, all peoples, and in all seasons.
Fishing, swimming, boating, hunting, skiing, and endless snowmobile trails are just some of what the area has to offer. Walk or bike the Millennium trail, geocache for the wolves throughout the city, and admire the largest lit mural in the world. Camp at McCreedy Campground, Paint Lake, or Setting Lake Campgrounds and be awed by the mysterious call of the loon. Visit our 3 Manitoba Star Attractions – Heritage North Museum, Spirit Way and the picturesque Pisew Falls or, on a clear night, watch the aura borealis (northern lights) dance across the night sky.
Thompson is also a city of celebrations. Enjoy live music, traditional games, a feast and square dance competition at Aboriginal Days; come for Nickel Days and see the parade, King Miner Contest, fireworks, midway and concerts; celebrate Canada Day and Folklorama or just enjoy the Concerts in the Park.
Economically, Thompson is also a land of unlimited opportunities for developers, investors and entrepreneurs with the new acquisition of 3 parcels of land, zoned residential to Industrial, totalling 151.85 acres.
