St. Norbert

Winnipeg’s Gateway Community

Projecting a true small town “country” atmosphere, St. Norbert lies just south of Winnipeg’s Perimeter Highway at the junction of the Red and La Salle Rivers. This historically important community still reflects its Métis and French-Canadian heritage, making it culturally distinct among Winnipeg neighbourhoods. Perhaps most important among many business advantages is the fact that St. Norbert serves as the southern gateway to Winnipeg, providing it with significant drive-through traffic from Southern Manitoba and the United States. This, combined with St. Norbert’s ability to draw upon the largely affluent population of South Winnipeg, for whom St. Norbert’s famous Farmers’ Market has become an institution, means that local businesses enjoy a much larger customer base than St. Norbert’s population would indicate.
