St. Georges

Aprox Population: 500

A little piece of heaven on the shores of the Winnipeg River just over 140 kilometres northeast of the Manitoba capital, St. Georges has spectacular scenery that is perfectly suited to swimming, fishing, hiking, canoeing, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.

The origins of this charming town date back to 1882. Father Joachim Allard, who was stationed at the Fort Alexander Indian reserve, dreamt of establishing a French-Canadian parish on the Winnipeg River. Three families from Châteauguay, Quebec, answered the call.

The St. Georges museum houses an impressive collection of artifacts, including a ferry that was used to cross the Winnipeg River. Every July, the Châteauguay Festival, named in honour of the town of origin of its first settlers, features a number of activities, including a pancake breakfast, pickerel fishing, sandcastle-building contest, sports tournaments, board games and a live show.

You may come for the breathtaking beauty of the landscape, but it is the warm welcome of area residents that will make you want to stay!
