Historic Sites of Manitoba: Queen Elizabeth II Statue (Kennedy Street, Winnipeg)

Created by Manitoba artist Leo Mol, this statue commemorates Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s address to the Manitoba Legislative Assembly during the provincial centenary in 1970. Originally situated in the Steinkopf Gardens at the Centennial Concert Hall, the statue was relocated to its present site on the grounds of Government House in 2010. It was unveiled by Her Majesty, accompanied by His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, at a ceremony on 3 July 2010. The statue was toppled during a public demonstration on 1 July 2021.
