Churchill, Manitoba

Churchill, Manitoba

Churchill, a small town of just under 1,000 residents, is located on the western shore of Hudson Bay. Some of the town's most famous inhabitants are polar bears, this of course leading to its famous nickname, Polar Bear Capital of the World. Humans first arrived in Churchill around 1000 A.D. (the Thule Peoples) with the first Europeans arriving around the 1600's with promises of the fur trade. Churchill has now evolved from an industrial fur trading centre to a ecotourism driven community.
