Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. John Cantius Roman Catholic Church (852 Burrows Avenue, Winnipeg)

This former Roman Catholic church on Burrows in Winnipeg was built in two phases. The basement was completed in 1918 and the superstructure designed by local architect George W. Northwood was finished seven years later by contractor J. A. Tremblay. The church served its congregation until 1971 when a new building was constructed immediately to the east. It remains in use as a church hall.
