For Sale or for Rent

The City of Winnipeg is asking the question - six months to answer.

At the June 27 meeting of the Standing Committee on Property and Development Policy, the City of Winnipeg recognized the importance of the civic square to the residents of St. Boniface.

As a result, it passed a motion to launch consultations with the public and community stakeholders. These consultations will include discussions with community groups such as the Société de la francophonie manitobaine, the Ami.e.s du carré civique and the Association des résidents du vieux Saint-Boniface.

In its deliberations, the committee highlighted a crucial point: the old fire station is in a more precarious state than St. Boniface City Hall. The future of the fire station is uncertain, and there is no guarantee that it will be in a condition to be rented or sold.

You can watch this key moment from the committee meeting here:

Les consultations de la ville sont un pas dans la bonne direction. Cette mesure indique que la vente ou la location à long terme du carré civique ne sera pas prise à la légère. Elle répond aux préoccupations de la communauté que «notre patrimoine n’est pas à vendre» et à l’attachement profond de la communauté à la préservation de ce lieu emblématique.

The city has already initiated two meetings with the named stakeholders, and a third will be held in the near future.

The next steps in this process will include extensive consultation with the community, and the issuance of a request for proposals is anticipated. The committee will then decide whether the city will proceed with the sale or rental of the properties.

We are committed to providing updates following future meetings with the City of Winnipeg.
