History of Lavalee


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

While there are a handful of homes in the neighbourhood built prior to World War I, much of Lavalee's residential building stock dates from between the World Wars and the most were built in the 1950-1970 period. There is a large, multi-tenant development in the southern portion of the neighbourhood off Marlene Street built in the early 1970s.
