Heritage Resources

North St. Boniface was part of the City of St. Boniface when it became part of the City of Winnipeg which came into legal existence on January 1, 1972.

This neighbourhood is steeped in history, featuring some of the oldest structures standing in St. Boniface. It is comprised of mostly single-family residential housing, some dating from the 1880s and located west of the Seine River. Most of the housing stock was built in the era between the World Wars, although a newer development in the north portion of the neighbourhood along Rue Aubert dates to the 1990s.

The neighbourhood also includes part of the Seine River and its walkway system, Whittier Park and Lagimodière-Gaboury Historic Park and the north side of Provencher Boulevard, the old City of St. Boniface's premier commercial and political street. Newer development along the boulevard has included multi-tenant apartments.
