Manitoba is one of Canada's ten provinces, and the easternmost of the Prairie Provinces. A traditional territory of several First Nations, European fur traders first arrived in what is now Manitoba during the late 17th century, with the French under La Vérendrye setting up several trading post forts in the area. In 1670, Britain declared sovereignty over the watershed of Hudson's Bay, making it part of Rupert's Land under the authority of the Hudson's Bay Company. In 1763, New France was dissolved, and Rupert's Land expanded to include where the French forts had been. In 1811, Lord Selkirk established the first colony in Rupert's Land of Assiniboia, or the Red River Colony, around the Red River in Rupert's Land. In 1818, Britain and the United States agreed to establish the 49th parallel as the official border and assign that portion of Rupert's Land south of the parallel to the United States. After Britain transferred Rupert's Land and the North-Western Territory to the new country of Canada in 1870, the Government of Canada established the Province of Manitoba on a portion of the transferred territory that included the Red River Colony. Canada became responsible for the settlement of aboriginal title to the lands and entered into treaties with several First Nations. Manitoba is the first province created from the Territories and was subsequently expanded in 1881 and 1912 to its present boundaries. The economy was long based on farming, centering on grains, cattle and hay. The economy is now diversified due to urbanization.
