Winnipeg is Canada's seventh largest city, with a population of 633,451 (2006 Census), and the capital of Manitoba. An aboriginal trading centre before the arrival of the Europeans, Winnipeg was central to Canada’s fur trade. Two major rivers, the Red and Assiniboine, meet in the centre of city at The Forks. Winnipeg boasts its own ballet company, a symphony orchestra, a major folk festival, the CFL's Winnipeg Blue Bombers and The Winnipeg Jets, the city's beloved NHL team that returned in 2011.
