St. Boniface

Home of Winnipeg’s French Quarter

A community at Winnipeg’s heart… Before there was a Winnipeg, there was St. Boniface – a thriving French-Canadian community which has served as the spiritual, cultural and even political counterpoint to its neighbour across the river. Today, this vibrant multi-cultural community is an exciting blend of the old, the new and the future – a place that offers one of Winnipeg’s most exciting places to live and do business.

Born during the time of the Fur Trade, St. Boniface enjoys the longest and most distinguished past of any Winnipeg community. Led by such notable historical figures as Bishop Taché and Louis Riel, St. Boniface played a central role in both the development of the Red River Colony (now Winnipeg) and the foundation of the Province of Manitoba. Today, signs of this illustrious past are still visible in the many important historical landmarks found throughout St. Boniface including St. Boniface Cathedral, Old St. Boniface City Hall and St. Boniface Museum.

A community rooted in history…St. Boniface is filled with many monuments and statues honouring people who have played an important role in the community’s past including the explorer La Vérendrye and the Father of Manitoba, Louis Riel.

A community for living… Being a fully bilingual community, St. Boniface offers schools in the French, English and French-Immersion stream of education.

A community for business…Home to the internationally recognized St. Boniface Hospital Research Centre and I.H. Asper Clinical Research Institute as well as several software and internet development companies, St. Boniface is a focal point for state-of-the-art research and technology.
