Historic Sites of Manitoba: Union Bank Annex (500 Main Street, Winnipeg)

The Union Bank of Canada moved its head office to Winnipeg in 1912, occupying several floors of its building at the southwest corner of Main Street and William Avenue. In 1921, it added a two-storey addition to the south, described by the bank as a “Savings Annex.” The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
