West St. Paul

Neighbourhood Guide

Welcome to West St. Paul

If your ideal home includes parking for your boat, while being located adjacent to the capital city of Winnipeg, West St. Paul might be the place for you. Residents are attracted to the area for its casual lifestyle, access to the Royal Manitoba Yacht club, dining dockside while listening to live music, larger properties than often available in the City, modern homes, and low taxes. It’s not hard to understand why in recent years, West St Paul has seen an explosion of growth with new subdivisions attracting many professional families who appreciate the easy access to Winnipeg while allowing their families time to enjoy a relaxed, port-side life.

The rural municipality has a rich and vibrant history dating back to before the Manitoba Legislature created St. Paul in 1880. West St. Paul was founded around the fur trade, the Red River water route, agricultural industry, church missionaries, proximity to the City of Winnipeg and the Veterans who settled in our community after World War II. Today, West St. Paul is one of the fastest growing communities in the capital region.
