Arborg2016 Population 1,252 is a town located in the Rural Municipality of Bifrost in Manitoba's Interlake Region, 103 kilometres north of Winnipeg

The picturesque setting along the Icelandic River was first settled more than 100 years ago Its first postal address was Ardal Meaning "River Valley" but in 1910 when the Canadian Pacific Railway reached the settlement, the name was changed to Arborg Meaning "River Town"

Icelanders established homesteads to the east, west, north, and south of the village, and by 1908 the first Polish and Ukrainian settlers had arrived in the area The coming of the railroad brought large numbers of Ukrainians who settled throughout the district along with groups from other European countries This mixture gave Arborg a rich cultural diversity and its own distinct character The many different churches, the ethnic foods and the social activities are all evidence of the cultural complexity of the town

James Reimer, a goaltender for the Florida Panthers, is a notable Arborgian
