North of 53
North of 53 is the northern region of Manitoba.
The name refers to 53°N and the northern border of the province is 60°N, so the area is rather large; seven degrees north-to-south is about 420 miles or 750 km. Since the Canada-US border in this area is (mostly) at 49°N and the province is considerably wider toward the North, the "North of 53" part of Manitoba actually includes well over half the province's land area. However, nearly all the province's population is in the South. This area is quite sparsely populated.
Train service between Thompson and Churchill was restored in 2018.
