Discover our PASSION & HISTORY!

Welcome to Saint-Boniface, the heart of Manitoba’s French-speaking community and the Francophone capital of Western Canada. A bustling community awaits you. With more than 100,000 Francophones in Manitoba, you’re sure to be greeted with a friendly “Bonjour!” during your stay.

Saint-Boniface is right across the river from the famous Forks market and downtown Winnipeg. It is very unique in its architecture, French culture, Métis history, and language, though it’s the passion of its people who were destined to disappear in the history books but who have persevered, thrived, and share a unique “joie de vivre” (love of life) that make this area so inviting.

Saint-Boniface attractions tell of its rich history, while cafés, restaurants, theatres, and cultural sites share its modern experiences.

Come say “Bonjour!” in Saint-Boniface.
