Emerson is nestled next to the boundary between Canada and the U.S. on Highway #75, which connects immediately with Interstate Highway #29 at the North Dakota border.  It is situated 100 km south of the perimeter of Winnipeg in the Red River Valley and is your first step in exploring the Boundary Commission Trail, also known as the Heritage Region.  Franklin was incorporated in 1883 and is located in south eastern Manitoba, approximately 80 kilometers south of Manitoba’s capital city, Winnipeg. Franklin parallels the Canada/U.S.A. border along its southern boundary. The region is easily accessible with Provincial Highway 59, the major route that runs through the municipality. Provincial roads 200, 201, 217, and 218 help connect the municipality’s several communities together. The western border of Franklin is the Red River, with the Roseau River running through the municipality itself.

Rich with culture, historic places and plenty of outdoor adventures, the Emerson-Franklin region is an outdoor paradise just waiting for you to explore.
