Winnipeg's Original Downtown

Lights On The Exchange

The Exchange District invites you to explore light in its many forms and settings.

Experience a public winter arts festival that brings to light artistic expressions that tell histories that go beyond the conventional narratives associated with the district’s heritage buildings.

Future of the Exchange

The Exchange District reflects Winnipeg’s past while shining a light on its future potential as a sustainable and creative city.

Together with the Winnipeg City Council adopted Exchange District Plan 2022, the Exchange District Community Investment Strategy, sets the course to transform the area into Canada’s most walkable and successful urban neighbourhood.
