Louis Riel Day Origins

In 2008, Manitoba schools were invited to name our province’s newest holiday and 114 responded with suggestions that reflected Manitoba’s citizenship, history, culture, arts, sports and significant individuals from our past.

Eleven schools submitted the winning entry and received $1,000 grants to purchase materials for their school library.
