Historic Sites of Manitoba: Allard School / Winnipeg Police Academy (130 Allard Avenue, Winnipeg)

Construction of a two-storey brick school building in west Winnipeg commenced in the spring of 1966. Designed by the local architectural firm of Pratt, Lindgren, Snider, and Tomcej, the future Allard School was contructed by S. D. Burton Limited and it opened in February 1967. The school took its name from the adjoining street which, in turn, commemorates missionary and cleric Joachim Allard. The building had 24 classrooms for classes from Kindergarten to grade 6, a large gymnasium, and library.

After the school closed in 1986, the building was renovated for use by the Winnipeg Police Academy. It also hosted the Winnipeg Police Museum until its move to the police headquarters in downtown Winnipeg.
