Historic Sites of Manitoba: Ella Cora Hind Plaque (300 Carlton Street, Winnipeg)

A path-breaking advocate of women’s rights in Manitoba, Cora Hind also gained an international reputation as an agricultural journalist. Writing for the Manitoba Free Press from 1901 to 1942, she became legendary for the accuracy of her wheat crop estimates, which were eagerly awaited by grain traders in Canada and abroad. Hind travelled throughout the Prairies on farm inspection tours, gaining a deep understanding of the lives of homesteading families. Influential in many organizations, she fought passionately for political and social reforms, especially women’s suffrage and temperance.

This plaque by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada was erected in 1997 by the Free Press Building on Carlton Street, where Hind worked for many years.
