Saint Boniface, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

St Boniface, Manitoba, former city and historic French community, now a municipal ward of the metropolitan government of the city of WINNIPEG (incorporated in 1972). St Boniface is located on the banks of the Red and Seine rivers in eastern Winnipeg.

Fur traders and European mercenaries hired by Lord SELKIRK to protect his fledgling RED RIVER COLONY were among the area's first settlers. With the founding of a Roman Catholic mission (1818), St Boniface began its role in Canadian religious, political and cultural history - as mother parish for many French settlements in Western Canada; as the birthplace of Louis RIEL and fellow Métis who struggled to obtain favourable terms for Manitoba's entry into Confederation; and as a focus of resistance to controversial 1890 legislation to alter Manitoba's school system and abolish French as an official language in the province.
