We know that members of the francophone community cherish the buildings located at 219 Provencher Blvd. (Saint-Boniface City Hall) and 212 Dumoulin St. (Saint-Boniface Fire Hall No. 1). These buildings are symbols of francophone culture and history.

City offices are no longer needed in these buildings and we are asking the community to help determine their future.
