We carefully put him back in the tall grass and decided to do some research. After an unsuccessful search at school today, and some deep investigations at home this evening, I think this is a Banded Tussock caterpillar. I would certainly be open to feedback if any of our readers have any information or thoughts.
If this is in fact a Banded Tussock, he will eat many kinds of trees and shrubs found in Manitoba and turn into a light coloured moth like this one:
