Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Industrial Park, The Pas)
An all-steel grain elevator in an industrial park on the outskirts of The Pas, on the CNR Flin Flon Subdivision, was constructed by Manitoba Pool Elevators between October 1993 and September 1994 to replace an older wooden elevator in town. It opened officially on 26 October 1994. The elevator was closed by Viterra on 31 October 2008 with company officials citing “limited storage and throughput capacity” that made it uneconomical. It was demolished in 2014.
