Tidal is an unincorporated area and railway point in Census division 23 in Northern Manitoba, Canada.[1][3]

History

Tidal was founded with the building of the Hudson Bay Railway in the third decade of the 20th century. When the originally intended final section line route to Port Nelson was abandoned, the construction of the new route of the final section from Amery north to Churchill, which opened in 1929, led to its founding. Tidal lies on the line between the settlements of Digges to the south and Churchill to the north, about 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) south of Churchill.[3]

Transportation

Tidal is the site of Tidal railway station, served by the Via Rail Winnipeg–Churchill train.[4]
