RURAL MUNICIPALITY OF ST. LAURENT
The Rural Municipality of St. Laurent Welcomes you!
Poised on the shores of Lake Manitoba, St. Laurent offers some of the nicest beaches in Manitoba with over 600 lake front cottage lots. With the most scenic and peaceful sunsets, St. Laurent is growing, with many long standing seasonal residents choosing our community to call home. And who could blame them! Only a short drive to Winnipeg, St. Laurent offers all the amenities you could ever need including restaurants, grocery store, post office, ambulance and local fire station, assisted living centre with nursing aids and nurse practitioner, pharmacy, recreation centre, baseball diamonds, and arena. If you're an avid sportsman St. Laurent offers great fishing and hunting as well as ATV, snowmobile trails and our Manipogo Golf Course. St. Laurent is also a large farming community with many hectares of pasture land, cattle, hobby and professional. We are proud to have our own meat packers plant as well. Interlake Packers has been around for decades offering a fine assortment of smoked meats and custom cuts.
More then just cottage country, St. Laurent is a proud Metis community which was chosen in 2004 by the prestigious Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC for their inaugural exhibit located in the new National Museum of the American Indian. They chose our community above so many others across North America because of the true vitality and distinctiveness of the Metis identity.
So please come visit us. We look forward to seeing you!
