Winnipeg was similar to most other North American cities in experiencing a major population boom in the 1950s. The expansion of both religious and educational facilities during that period, to meet the increased demands, resulted in an excellent collection of building designs that were both innovative and architecturally interesting.
A wealth of Winnipeg buildings (residential, commercial and institutional) from the 1950s and 1960s remain, however, development pressures are now threatening the buildings, through either “updating” or demolition.
Please enjoy the information about these buildings and landscapes. We hope you will be encouraged to explore them in person.
