I am moving from outside Winnipeg into the city and want to keep my phone number. Currently it is a long distance call within the city. Can I get setup local for Winnipeg without changing phone numbers?

That's not possible. You will have to change your number.

If you have Canada-wide calling, you will not pay extra to call numbers in Winnipeg, but others may have to pay to call you. If you want people in Winnipeg to be able to call you without paying extra, you'll need to change your number since charges are based on the rate centre where your number is assigned.
