Footnotes ...

<1>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Winnipeg refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a city's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Winnipeg may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<2>Unless noted otherwise, the population counts we use should be considered estimates. Our population values for Winnipeg were taken from various sources and although they can be traced back to Statistics Canada (StatCan), they should not be considered official.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Winnipeg - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Winnipeg) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Winnipeg. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Winnipeg
