Transcona was officially incorporated into a town over 100 years ago, and people have been living in the area for even longer than that. It’s one of the most unique neighbourhoods in Winnipeg – one that has maintained its own identity even after the city’s amalgamation in the ‘70s. From the “Welcome to Downtown Transcona” sign to all of the locally owned businesses, you’re going to love this neighbourhood and the apartments we have for rent here. Our apartments for rent in Winnipeg are listed below.
