Les Ami.e.s du carré civique de Saint-Boniface

Les Ami.e.s is a citizen action group that was formed earlier this year to protect the old St. Boniface City Hall and the entire Civic Square. The group was formed after the City of Winnipeg conditionally sold City Hall and the fire station to Manitoba Possible for the modest sum of $10,000.

Our Goals

Short Term

In the short term, les Ami.e.s are engaging with the community to ensure that property lines respect the integrity of City Hall and the Sculpture Garden. It should be noted that the Sculpture Garden extends from the west side to the Caisse Populaire property and from the north side of Provencher Boulevard to the garden's graphic sign. 

Medium Term

In the medium term, les Ami.e.s will work with the tenants and owners of the various buildings (e.g. the Sculpture Garden, the Artists' House, the Festival du Voyageur) to protect and preserve the Civic Square and keep them in the community. 

Long Term

In the long term, les Ami.e.s would like to develop a community strategy to manage the various buildings in the Civic Square with the support and collaboration of the SFM and the organizations currently located there.

Our vision for the future

We want the St. Boniface Civic Square to remain a center of activity for the Francophone community in Manitoba, the general public, and a collective asset and heritage for generations to come.
