Welcome to Thompson
Carved out of the boreal forest by mining interests in the 1950s, Thompson is a rather charmless town that travelers pass through en route to Churchill. Charmless, that is, except for two exceptions. Its relatively new fame as 'Wolf Capital of the World' and a Boreal Discovery Centre that allows visitors to learn all about this predator, common in the wilderness around town, as well as other denizens of the boreal forest. A newly designed Spirit Way connects the town's important landmarks, from the Heritage North Museum to the immense wolf mural, wolf statues and the Norseman floatplane.
