      Manitoba Province History
Manitoba has been continuously inhabited from about 10,000 B.C. The Ojibwe, Cree, Dene, Sioux, Mandan, and Assiniboine peoples are probably the first European to set foot in the area. Henry Hudson was one of the first Europeans to sail into what is now known as Hudson Bay in 1611. The name "Manitoba" is likely derived from the languages of the Cree or Ojibwe, and means "strait of the Manitou". Sir Thomas Button, leader of the first white people in Manitoba, explored the west coast of Hudson Bay. The Hudson's Bay Company was given the fur trading rights to the entire Hudson Bay watershed that covers land in what is now known as Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Minnesota and North Dakota. This watershed was named Rupert's Land, after Prince Rupert who helped to form the Hudson's Bay Company. Rupert's Land was ceded to Canada in 1869 and incorporated into the Northwest Territories. The Red River settlement was established at the Winnipeg site in 1812. In 1821 the North West and Hudson's Bay companies united and the fort was enlarged and renamed Fort Garry. The new Provincial government was controlled by Anglo Canadians. The agreement for the establishment of the Province has included guarantees that the Métis would receive grants of land and that their existing unofficial landholdings would be recognized. Winnipeg was the fourth largest city in Canada in the early 1900s. Winnipeg was inundated during the 1950 Red River Flood and had to be partially evacuated. On 21st century the Manitoba was faced some major issues. Manitoba's debt has risen because the government has increased public services without raising taxes significantly.
