Manitoba Day

Manitoba Day is May 12th

Manitoba Day History

The Manitoba Act, which created the Province of Manitoba, was given Royal Assent on May 12, 1870. This paved the way for the proclamation on July 15, 1870. On May 12, 1966 Manitoba’s official flag was dedicated and unfurled for the first time. In 1986, May 12 was designated as Manitoba Day in perpetuity, in recognition of the importance of this day in the history of the Province.
