Brandon is the second-largest city in Manitoba, boasting a population of approximately 50,000 and a trading area of close to 180,000.

Brandon was incorporated as a city on May 30, 1882, after being chosen as a major divisional point of the Canadian Pacific Railway a year earlier due to its proximity to the Assiniboine River. General Thomas Rosser drew the city's name from the nearby Brandon Hills.

Known as "The Wheat City," Brandon is a hub for agricultural activity. It is also well-known for its hosting capabilities for national and international events, including the 2019 Tim Hortons Brier, the 2010 Memorial Cup and the 2021 U SPORTS National Men's Volleyball Championship.

The Royal Manitoba Winter Fair, one of two fairs to have a royal designation, is held each March in Brandon. The city is also home to The Keystone Centre, a multi-purpose facility that offers 540,000 square feet under one roof.

The city is home to the Western Hockey League's Brandon Wheat KingsBrandon University and Assiniboine Community College. It is served by several media outlets, including The Brandon Sun newspaper and radio stations 96.1 BOB-FM, 101.1 Pure Country, 91.5 QCountry and 94.7 STAR-FM.
