Memorable Manitobans: Hermisdas Benard (c1858-1906)

Businessman.

Born in Quebec, he farmed in the St. Jean district of Quebec until moving to Winnipeg around 1872 where, for the next 20 years, he worked as a butcher. In 1892, he went into the hotel business, purchasing the Hotel du Canada on Lombard Avenue East. Poor health forced him to sell the hotel in 1903. Using the money, he purchased a large home on Edmonton Street where he lived until his death on 3 October 1906.
