Our Story

Winnipeg Beach has been a popular resort community since the president of the Canadian Pacific Railway, Sir William Whyte, founded it in 1900. The town's two kilometres of soft sandy beach attracted both the common labourer and the social elite. Today, the beachfront community still attracts vacationers from all walks of life who come to enjoy the beach and the cottage lined streets of the present community. Located on the south shore of Lake Winnipeg, the quiet town is only a 45 minute drive north of Winnipeg, the provincial capital.
