At the heart of Winnipeg’s charming French quarter lies 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, had been serving the educational needs of the largest francophone community in Western Canada. In its boutiques and bistros, francophone heritage still thrives in 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, technology and new media, 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.
