Souris

Description

Souris is an unincorporated urban community in the Municipality of Souris – Glenwood within the Canadian province of Manitoba that held town status prior to January 1, 2015 (2016 population: 1,876). It is located within the municipality along the Souris River, from which it takes its name. Before 1882, the town was called Plum Creek. The community is home to Canada's longest historic cable-stayed footbridge (177 m [581 ft]), known as the Swinging Bridge, which spans the Souris River that divides the community. The Swinging Bridge was built in 1904 as a means of transportation over the Souris River. Residents of Souris are referred to as Sourisites. Souris is surrounded by the former Rural Municipality of Glenwood. The community was home to Alice Masak French, an Inuvialuk author from Baille Island in the Northwest Territories.
