St. Boniface Cathedral

Manitoba’s urban francophone community

Winnipeg’s francophone community welcomes you! Discover the tourist attractions of the bilingual neighbourhoods of St. Boniface, St. Vital and St. Norbert, where you will learn more about the long and eventful history of Manitoba’s francophone community and its rich culture.

Head to the junction of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers, where the first Voyageurs arrived in the 18th century. Walk across the magnificent pedestrian bridge connecting St. Boniface and the Forks, visit the Riel House National Historic Site, which honours the memory of Métis leader Louis Riel, Manitoba’s “founding father,” or browse the local wares at the St. Norbert Farmer's Market.

Manitoba offers a wealth of diverse attractions. The best way to plan your itinerary so you don’t miss out on anything is to visit the Tourisme Riel tourist information centre at 219 Provencher Blvd., open year-round. A second information centre is open during the summer months at the St. Norbert Heritage Park.
