Ranges and gun clubs in Manitoba

This page is my attempt to make a comprehensive list of gun clubs and ranges in Manitoba. I am not actively looking for clubs in Northwestern Ontario, but if you run or are part of a club west of Thunder Bay I'd be happy to put your information on the site. If you know of any information on this page that's wrong or want something added to this page, please send me an email: Chris <firearms@drclaw.ca>. Thanks to all those who have sent in information so far.

Understanding Section-Township-Range Addresses

If you grew up in the city, like me, you might not know about how addresses work outside of towns and cities.

Section/Township/Range sample imageRural areas in Manitoba are divided up into grids with Townships running East-West and Ranges running North-South. Each Township-Range grid square is divided into 36 sections, each a mile square (so 640 acres per section, by the way). The sections are numbered 1-36 starting in the South-East corner (section 1) towards the South-West corner (section 6) then zig-zagging up to the North-East corner (section 36). So Section 12 is directly North of Section 1, and Section 13 is directly North of Section 12. The lines you see on a Municipality map aren't just map lines, but are mile roads and highways.

The compass direction before the Section-Township-Range numbers tells you what side of the Section you're looking for. For example N 5-13-5E tells you that you're looking for the North side of section 5 in Township 13 in Range 5E.

Municipality maps showing Section-Township-Range information used to be found on the Government of Manitoba website http://www.communityprofiles.mb.ca/index.html, but that site was discontinued. Now you have to sign up at the Manitoba Land Initiatives website to get maps of municipalities, but at least signing up is free. Once you've logged in, choose "Download Digital Maps" then "Municipal Maps".
