Winnipeg – the capital of Manitoba and the “gateway to the west” – is a stunning multi-cultural city with big businesses, small shops, incredible sports teams, great schools, beautiful rivers and world-class arts, so it’s no wonder more than 730,000 people call the area home.

If you’re one of the thousands who will move here this year, take heart. Although the city is large, it’s also friendly and fairly easy to navigate. Plus, because our population is active on social media, finding the services and information you need to feel at home is easier than ever. Take a look at our top five Winnipeg-relates Twitter accounts and see for yourself:

City of Winnipeg: From construction updates and job openings to festivals, programs and services, the City of Winnipeg helps residents stay up to date the business of the government.

Downtown Winnipeg: Downtown Winnipeg Biz keeps newbies and long-time Winnipeggers alike in the know about concerts, farmers’ markets, seasonal events, celebrations, new businesses and activities throughout city’s urban core.

CTV Winnipeg: Serving up local news on TV and online, the team at CTV Winnipeg gives you all the top headlines, plus the weather and local news you need.

Peg City Grub: Local food and restaurant news makes it easy to find your favorite (or a new favorite) place in town.

Tourism Winnipeg: You may be a local, but Winnipeg’s tourism board can teach you a thing or two. With details on parks, outdoor activities, festivals, services and things to do year ‘round, Tourism Winnipeg gives you all the information you need to stay active and engaged.

Bo Kauffmann of REMAX:  Real estate information, tips, advice, market updates and listings.  Great info for buyers, sellers and home owners in Winnipeg, published by one of Winnipeg’s top real estate agents for sellers and buyers.

 

Along with businesses and organizations that can help you settle in and make Winnipeg feel like home, Twitter is chock full of companies, industries and non-profits that make acclimating to the area simple. From groups for ex-pats, to mommy-and-me groups, running and cycling clubs, to youth and adult sports leagues, Twitter makes it easier than ever to get involved and enjoy the things you love in your new city.

You'll actually be quite surprised to know what kind of information they'll be able to give you about the area near your home and it's worth a shot hey?
