Colony was part of the City of Winnipeg when it amalgamated with the surrounding municipalities to form the City of Winnipeg which came into legal existence on January 1, 1972.

Colony is a small mixed neighbourhood on the west side of Winnipeg’s downtown. It features two of Winnipeg’s signature structures: the University of Winnipeg Wesley Hall on Portage Avenue and the Winnipeg Art Gallery on Memorial Boulevard. There is office/retail development along both sides of Portage Avenue.
