Welcome to
McCreary, Manitoba, Canada
The Ski and Maple Syrup Capital of Manitoba
Alpine Archie - McCreary's mascot since 1978.
This one and a half tonne statue was sculpted by George Barone.
Picturesque, with tree lined streets, McCreary basks in the shelter of the scenic, wooded Riding Mountain National Park. Unpolluted air, an abundance of excellent drinking
water, and top grade recreation facilities for all seasons from alpine skiing, if we can get the ski hill opened again, and snowmobiling to swimming and golfing exist here. Also
there is great cultural diversity to suit all tastes through the library and arts council.

Camping, boating, fishing, swimming and picnic sites at lakes that are as near as 15 minutes are a recreational haven and great attraction. Excellent water quality and supply
provide unlimited scope for development opportunity. Favourable wildlife habitat provide recreational and tourism potential.

Mount Agassiz Ski Resort is considered by many to provide the best skiing between the Rockies and Thunder Bay. Mt. Agassiz was the site of the alpine events of the 1979
Canada Winter Games. Agassiz is located in Riding Mountain National Park, 16 kilometers west of the village of McCreary. However, the ski hill is not open at the present time.
McCreary and District, the Ski and Maple Syrup Capital of Manitoba, welcomes you!
Come visit McCreary in winter, spring, summer, or fall!

Notice to all "McCrearyites" - Former and Current: The McCreary History Book Committee has been revived. Due to numerous requests,
consideration is being given to reprinting the original "Milestones and Memories" as well as publishing a Volume II Edition. A pricing proposal has been
received which gives us the following numbers, based on printing 300 copies... (of course, we anticipate more than 300 copies so the price may be
reduced to some degree) $70/copy or $140 for the set. So here is where we need your help. We are asking you to contact the committee so that the
number of copies required can be ordered. Also please get your stories and pictures collected because we will soon be asking for updates for Volume II.
The committee can be contacted by:
- email to mccrearyhistorybook2@gmail.com
- fax to 204-835-2649
- regular mail to MHBC, Box 338, McCreary, MB R0J 1B0
- In person to Municipality of McCreary office at 432 - 1st Ave., McCreary
Thank you for your assistance, and please feel free to share this with anyone who may be interested. Please contact by APRIL 30, 2016.
