Message from the Mayor 

On behalf of West St. Paul Council and staff, I would like to thank you for visiting our website!  As Mayor and third generation resident of West St. Paul, I am very proud of our community.  We have 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, our proximity to the City of Winnipeg and the Veterans who settled in our community after World War II.  
Today, our community continues to thrive and grow.  We represent one of the fastest growing communities in the capital region.  With a variety of residential lot sizes, a life-lease apartment building and the recent addition of multi-family townhouse apartments, we are attracting young families and helping older adults remain in our community.  We have eight playground areas in West St. Paul, walking trails throughout the community, outdoor skating rinks and an active community center to host special events and bring our residents together all year round.    
Commercial and light industrial development is expanding in West St. Paul.  With easy access to the Perimeter Highway, CentrePort and the City of Winnipeg, our community is an ideal location for business.  
As a community leader, I will continue to build strong relationships through collaboration with residents, local businesses, regional partners as well as our Provincial and Federal representatives.  
If you are a resident or visitor to our community, I extend a warm welcome to Wonderful West St. Paul.  I encourage you to take some time and discover all that makes our community a wonderful place to live, work and play.  Please feel free to contact our staff or elected officials if you have any questions or ideas.  As Mayor, it is my pleasure to serve this community!

Mayor, West St. Paul
