At the heart of Winnipeg’s charming French quarter lies the Université de Saint-Boniface, Manitoba’s only French-language post-secondary institution. Decades before Manitoba even became a province, Collège de Saint-Boniface, as it was then known, was serving the educational needs of the largest francophone community in Western Canada. Francophone heritage still thrives in the boutiques and bistros of the Saint-Boniface neighbourhood.
Through its two technical and professional schools—the École technique et professionnelle and École des sciences infirmières et des études de la santé—students can choose from a wide range of one- and two-year programs in business administration, computer science and multimedia communications, early childhood education, tourism and nursing. Both schools focus on providing applied learning programs that directly address the needs of Manitoba’s bilingual job market.
