Learn More About St. Laurent, Manitoba
St. Laurent (French St-Laurent) is an unincorporated community in Manitoba, located on the eastern shore of Lake Manitoba and serviced by Manitoba Highway 6. It lies within the boundaries of the Rural Municipality of St. Laurent and is 95 km (59 miles) from Winnipeg.
As described in the mid-1980s, the community of around 1.000 people lacked a single townsite, and was instead more like an Old World chain village, as the land was originally divided by the French river lot system (a number of long, narrow farm fields along a central road on the lakeshore), rather than the geometrical patterns of the Dominion Land Survey in much of the rest of Manitoba. The land is primarily glacial till with limited potential for agriculture, though farming does occur in the community. The climate is continental with extreme variation between seasons.
