Manitoba did not 'join' Confederation. On July 15, 1871, the North West Territories (a.k.a. Rupert's Land) was acquired by Canada from Britain. On the same date, the Province of Manitoba was created out of the North West Territories. British Columbia was the first province to 'join' Confederation, thereby becoming the sixth province. That was on July 20, 1871.

Manitoba was the 5th province to join Canada. ================================= While Manitoba was the fifth province to "enter Confederation," it was not the fifth province to "join" Canada. To "join" indicates that two prior existing bodies became one. Manitoba did not exist until the Government of Canada created it as a province out of Northwest Territories on July 15, 1870. Therefore, Manitoba did not "join" Canada. The three provinces that originally joined together on July 1, 1867, to create Canada were Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the pre-Confederation Province of Canada. Upon Confederation, the pre-Confederation Province of Canada was severed into the Provinces of Québec and Ontario, but likewise Québec and Ontario did not "join" Canada. The colony of British Columbia was the fourth province to "join" Canada (July 20, 1871) and the fifth province to "join" was Prince Edward Island (July 1, 1873).

When Canada came into being on July 1, 1867, there were four original provinces: Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Each original province entered Confederation at the same time and none has a priority of entry over any of the others. The fifth province to enter Confederation was Manitoba, but it was created by the federal government out of part of the Northwest Territories. Although it is correct to say that Manitoba "entered" Confederation on July 15, 1870, it did not exist as a separate colony prior to its creation. Therefore it did not "join" Confederation. The first province to "join" Confederation was British Columbia, on July 20, 1871. The second province to "join" was Prince Edward Island, on July 1, 1873 .
