Lake Winnipeg is a very large, relatively shallow 24,514-square-kilometre
(9,465 sq mi) lake in North America, in the province of Manitoba, Canada. Its southern end is about
55 kilometres (34 mi) north of the city of Winnipeg. Lake Winnipeg is Canada's sixth-largest
freshwater lake
[3]
and the third-largest freshwater lake contained entirely within Canada, but it is
relatively shallow (mean depth of 12 m [39 ft])
[4]
excluding a narrow 36 m (118 ft) deep channel
between the northern and southern basins. It is the eleventh-largest freshwater lake on Earth. The
lake's east side has pristine boreal forests and rivers that were in 2018 inscribed as Pimachiowin
Aki, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The lake is 416 km (258 mi) from north to south, with remote
sandy beaches, large limestone cliffs, and many bat caves in some areas. Manitoba Hydro uses the
lake as one of the largest reservoirs in the world. There are many islands, most of them
undeveloped.
