Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Boniface Oblate Fathers Cemetery (Des Meurons Street, Winnipeg)

A cemetery was established in 1913 by the Catholic Order of the Oblate Fathers in St. Boniface for people associated with the Order. Later, the land was granted towards the founding of the Centre Culturel Franco-Manitobain [Franco-Manitoba Cultural Centre]. In late 2015, the graves were exhumed, with the remains cremated and transferred to the St. Boniface Cemetery, where members of their Order have been interred since 1972.
