Our History

 

The Louis Riel School Division grew out of three different legacy divisions: the St. Vital, St. Boniface and Norwood School Divisions.

In a broad sense, the creation of Louis Riel School Division began in 1998 with the voluntary amalgamation of the Norwood School Division and the St. Boniface School Division.

Four years later, the Louis Riel School Division was established when Manitoba's premier at the time, Gary Doer, directed a number of school divisions - rural and urban - to amalgamate. This brought together the new St. Boniface School Division with the St. Vital School Division. The new division was named the Louis Riel School Division on February 5, 2002 and officially amalgamated on July 19 of the same year.
