Located within the heart of the richest agricultural belt in the Province, the economy is driven by a vibrant and progressive agricultural community. In addition, we look to ongoing diversification of the economy. Working diligently with local groups contributing to a quality of life second to none, the City of Portage la Prairie cherishes progress and seizes opportunities that enable our growth. Our City has a wide range of activities and interests, such as lodges, service clubs, youth groups, sports groups, senior citizen clubs, music and art.
