The Pas

'''The Pas''' ( ; French (French language): '''Le Pas''') is a town in Manitoba, Canada, located at the confluence of the Pasquia (Pasquia River) and the Saskatchewan (Saskatchewan River) rivers, at Saskin Division No. 21, Manitoba in the Northern Region (Northern Region, Manitoba). It is some 630 kilometres northwest of the provincial capital, Winnipeg, and about 40 kilometres from the border of Saskatchewan. It is sometimes still called '''Paskoyac''' by locals after the first trading post, called Fort Paskoyac and constructed during French colonial rule. The Pasquia River begins in the Pasquia Hills in east central Saskatchewan. The French in 1795 knew the river as Basquiau.

Known as "The Gateway to the North", The Pas is a multi-industry northern Manitoba town serving a district population of over 15,000 (including the Opaskwayak Cree Nation). The main components of the region's economy are agriculture, forestry, commercial fishing, tourism, transportation, and services (especially health and education). The main employer is a paper and lumber mill operated by Tolko Industries. The Pas contains one of the two main campuses of the University College of the North.

The Pas is bordered by the Rural Municipality of Kelsey (Kelsey, Manitoba), as well as part of the Opaskwayak Cree Nation.
