A History of the Archdiocese


If you would like more information on the Archdiocese, or a parish or community within it we recommend the following:

The Societe historique de Saint-Boniface
The Archdiocese of Winnipeg shares its early history with the Archdiocese of St. Boniface. Follow this link to discover the role that the Oblate Province of Manitoba played in the formation of these Churches.

Canadian Archival Infomation Network:
A good deal of Canada's history can be researched through CAIN, not the least of which are many of the parishes within the Archdiocese of Winnipeg. Hint: go to the "Search Archives" page and enter "Archdiocese of Winnipeg" as the text to search for. Note; not all parishes have been chronicled yet.

Archives and Records
Our own Archives and Records department can help you, particularly with family and sacrament research : baptism, marriage, death records, etc.
