St. Boniface is served by a number of streets: Provencher (which connects to Main Street via the Provencher Bridge), Taché (which connects to St. Mary’s and the St. Boniface Hospital), Marion, and Des Meurons. Most of the commercial activity in the neighbourhood can be found around these four streets.
The area is served by a number of bus routes, most of which follow along Provencher. You can catch the 10, 19, 43, and 49 buses in St. Boniface. The neighbourhood is right next to Winnipeg’s Downtown core, so it’s extremely easy to go from St. Boniface to anywhere else in the city.
St. Boniface was its own city before amalgamation, and that led to the development of all the infrastructure a city needs. There are plenty of convenience stores, pharmacies, grocery stores, hair salons, spas, and anything else you could want.
