It is not connected to the highway which leads to southern Manitoba which most will tell you it is. There is a ferry which is used to cross what may be the Nelson River. When the whites invaded southern Manitoba during the War of 1812, they used the Nelson River to reach Lake Winnipeg. From there they invaded southern Manitoba but were stopped. Since Norway House has no year round road access, it's population is quite large.
