Description:
Grand Rapids is a town in Manitoba, Canada located on the northwestern shore of Lake Winnipeg where the Saskatchewan River enters the lake. As the name implies, the river had a significant drop at this point (more than 75 feet in less than 3 miles). In modern days, a large hydro electric generating plant has been built. Cedar Lake, just a short distance up the river provides a natural water storage for this plant. PTH 6, the primary roadway in the region, crosses the Saskatchewan River at the Grand Rapids bridge.

Grand Rapids was on the main canoe route toward the west. See Canadian Canoe Routes . Fort Bourbon stood here at one time. It also sits across the river from Grand Rapids First Nation.

In 1894 fire destroyed a number of buildings in the Grand Rapids docks. Also the steamboat Colvile caught fire and was destroyed.
