Welcome to the Exchange District
Arts and cultural district in the heart of downtown Winnipeg. Restaurants, galleries, boutique shopping and so much more.
Guiding the Exchange District’s Future
The Exchange District is evolving at an unprecedented rate, and we’re leading a community effort to help set its course for the future.
Learn more about the planning process for setting priorities and values to guide the future of Winnipeg’s historic core.
Independent. Local. Historic.
Walk outdoors from shop to shop and get a bite to eat or something to sip along the way.
The Exchange District is Winnipeg’s premier local and independent shopping destination. Many retailers have reopened for walk-ins with measures in place for a COVID-safe shopping experience, and most still offer options for distanced ordering and pickup.
The family-owned gallery brilliantly highlights Inuit Art, Folk Art, Photography and Textile Art from both local and international artists.
This family-owned business has always understood the importance of adapting to changing business environments, and this past year has been no exception. Throughout the pandemic they have adapted increased health and safety measures and have implemented new business models that have allowed them to safely fit their community with quality footwear.
