The Bloodvein River is a wild and rugged river which sparkles and roams for over 300 kilometres from its headwaters in northwestern Ontario to its mouth on Lake Winnipeg in central Manitoba. In 1984 and 1986, Manitoba and Ontario, respectively, nominated their portions of the Bloodvein as a Canadian Heritage River. Working together, the two governments ensure that the heritage of the entire watershed is protected.
Owing to its location off the old trade and settlement routes to the west, the Bloodvein has remained unspoiled, its plant and animal communities virtually intact since the last glaciers scoured the area more than 11,000 years ago. The Bloodvein gives you the opportunity to explore the Canadian Shield - resplendent with a wide range of plants and animals.
