Overview

The Market Lands are situated in the heart of Winnipeg's Exchange District, central to many of Winnipeg's historical, cultural, and emerging community assets.  For the last fifty years the site has been home to Winnipeg's Public Safety Building and Civic Parkade.  At the time of the founding of the City of Winnipeg in the early 1800's, it was the site of the city's public market and a centre of commerce and trade.  ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

The redevelopment of these lands presents an unparalleled opportunity to create something great, in one of Winnipeg's greatest downtown neighbourhoods. Winnipeggers are being asked to get engaged in the process by providing their input into the redevelopment of the lands. This webpage is a platform for people to be informed, to be consulted, and to get involved.
