St.Pierre Jolys

Located on Hwy 59 midway between Winnipeg and the American border, the town of St.Pierre Jolys is the business and administrative centre of one of Manitoba’s most productive farming regions. The town’s history predates the province’s entry into the Canadian Confederation in 1870, with the arrival of French-Canadian settlers from Quebec as well as the northeastern United States. 

Approximately 70% of the town’s population is of French-Canadian origin and is for the most part bilingual. This is one of the reasons why the town has become a regional center for the delivery of regional bilingual services offered by both the provincial and federal governments: regional health centre with a 14-bed hospital and bilingual services centre with access to the services of  levels of government and also a regional RCMP detachment which has approximately 20 police officers and employees.

The economy of the area is also largely based on farming and agricultural support services. The rich fertile soil of the Red River Valley grows some of the finest grain crops on the Canadian prairies. Many large hog and poultry raising operations are to be found in the area. There is also a strong presence of the dairy sector, supplying processors in the nearby capital city of Winnipeg with raw milk. Wooded areas surrounding St.PierreJolys are equally well suited to the raising of cattle.
