Located just 26 kilometres southeast of Winnipeg, the village of Lorette enjoys country charm and proximity to the big city.

This bedroom community stretches along the Seine River and the Dawson Trail, which was used by Wolseley’s soldiers to get to the Red River during the Métis uprising in the second half of the 19th century.
