Although located in the middle of the prairies, Brandon has ready access to the major ports in Canada via the mainline railways. The presence of both Class 1 railroads in Brandon makes the ports easily accessible. Churchill, Manitoba’s ocean port on Hudson Bay, is only 3,380 nautical miles from Liverpool, U.K. Extended shipping seasons on Hudson Bay are encouraging use of the northern port, as are public and private sector investments in the port and rail line. The port has four deep-sea berths, able to accommodate Panamax class vessels.
