With known or recorded activity at The Forks site dating back more than 6,000 years, managing and protecting heritage resources on the site is a critical factor in Railside’s planning and development process.

Like all development projects at The Forks, Railside will be subject to rigorous standards for archaeological monitoring and protection, consistent with the requirements established under the Manitoba Heritage Resources Act and the goals of The Forks Heritage Interpretive Plan.
