GATEWAY for Manitoba’s FIRST FRANCOPHONES

D

id you know that the local history of Manitoba’s francophone community began in this magnificent region that spans from the area east of the Red River to the Ontario border, where the open prairies meet the rugged landscape of the Canadian Shield?

The French-speaking communities that sprang up here were mostly founded in the 19th century. At the turn of the 20th century, with the offer of a homestead, francophone immigrants from Europe also flooded into the area. We invite you to experience firsthand the joie de vivre and rugged charm of these rural communities along with the francophone heritage and culture that is uniquely Manitoban!

The first francophone Voyageurs passed through this region in the 18th century, heading west in search of furs.

M

anitoba’s southwest region stretches from the Red River Valley to the small francophone community of St. Lazare near the Saskatchewan border,

and includes the Pembina Valley region and the Métis community of St. Laurent, on the shores of Lake Manitoba. The area boasts some of the most fertile farmland in the province. Picture endless fields of golden wheat stretched out under a vast azure sky… a breathtaking scene that is typical of this magnificent region so rich in agriculture and history. This area has witnessed a strong francophone presence for nearly 200 years. The prairies of the Red River Valley were the staging area for the great Métis buffalo hunts. The Pembina Valley region drew countless European settlers and was immortalized in La Route d’Altamont, a collection of writings by the acclaimed Manitoba author, Gabrielle Roy.
