Only 113 km northeast of Winnipeg, lies the R.M. of Alexander. Stretching from the eastern shores of Lake Winnipeg east into the Whiteshell and north into the Canadian Shield, this 1,521 sq. km. region is serviced by six modern highways. Its year-round population of 2,500 explodes to over 20,000 in the summer. It offers parkland, beaches, forest, agriculture, industry and the amenities of both urban and rural settings, and is the hydro power centre of Manitoba.

This document was initially developed for administrative purposes but it was our feeling it may be of some real value for Emergency Services Personnel particularly those individuals who may not necessarily know the municipality.
