The Collège Universitaire de Saint-Boniface, or CUSB, is a university college affiliated with the University of Manitoba and located in Saint Boniface, Manitoba. It is oriented primarily towards the French-speaking community of St.-Boniface and others who want to learn, or be educated through, the French language and Franco-Manitoban culture.


St-Boniface College, established in Manitoba has a strong Roman Catholic religious affiliation. [] It originates from a school for boys founded in 1818 by Monseigneur Norbert Provencher. It was incorporated into its current form in 1871.

Consolidation was a way to strengthen this small and financially insecure institution. The University Of Manitoba was established in 1877 by combining 3 existing church colleges St-Boniface Roman Catholic; St John's Anglican and Manitoba College Presbyterian. []

In the early part of this century, professional education expanded beyond the traditional fields of theology, law and medicine. Graduate training based on the German-inspired American model of specialized course work and the completion of a research thesis was introduced. []

The policy of university education initiated in the 1960s responded to population pressure and the belief that higher education was a key to social justice and economic productivity for individuals and for society. []

By 2002 the college population was about 2/3 female.


It has about one thousand regular students and three thousand in its continuing education division, who study in the main building which is located right next to the St.-Boniface Cathedral, and a block away from Boulevard Provencher, the street located in the middle of St.-Boniface and at the heart of the Franco-Manitoban community.


The Collège universitaire de Saint-Boniface is a member of L'Association des universités de la francophonie canadienne, a network of academic institutions of the Canadian Francophonie. [ [ AUFC ] ]
