About Lake Winnipeg
The Lake Winnipeg is the 11th biggest freshwater lake on the Earth and the 6th largest freshwater lake in Canada, however, it is relatively shallow (mean depth of 12m [39ft]) excluding a narrow 36m [118ft] deep channel between the Northern and Southern basin. The surface area of the lake is 24,514 km2 (9,465 sq mi) and the volume is 284 km3 (68 cu mi).
The lake lies along one of the oldest trading routes in North America to have flown the British flag. It has been used for fur trades for several centuries. After the establishment of the Second British Empire, a significant increase in trade occurred over Lake Winnipeg between Rupert's Land and the United States.
Henry Kelsey is believed to be the first European to see the lake, in 1690. He named the lake wīnipēk (meaning muddy waters) in the Cree language. La Vérendrye referred to the lake as Ouinipigon after building his first forts in the area in the 1730s. Finally, the Red River Colony to its south took the lake's name for Winnipeg.
