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 the École des sciences infirmières et des études de la santé—students can choose from a range of one- and two-year programs in business administration, information technology, multimedia communications, early childhood education and tourism, as well as a one-, two- or four-year program in health care. Both schools provide applied learning programs that directly address the needs of Manitoba’s bilingual job market.
