Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes

Aprox Population: 620

This community located 100 kilometres south-west of Winnipeg gets its charm from the local residents, with their distinct European accents and old-world hospitality.

Unlike many of Manitoba’s francophone communities that were settled by pioneers from Quebec, it was French and Swiss immigrants who came to live in the La Montagne area in 1891 and gave the town a more European flavour.

You’ll love the warm hospitality of the Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes residents and their unique history!  Visit the Pioneer and Chanoinesses Museum and the memorials to community pioneers, including a statue of Dom Paul Benoît, the founder of Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes, and a monument commemorating the noteworthy contributions of the Chanoinesse nuns to local education.

If you have a sweet tooth, a trip to the French Bee Farm is a must!
