     History
    In 1911 an act was passed by the Manitoba Government incorporating the Public Markets Ltd. The plan was to furnish Manitoba livestock producers with a market-place, in an area where there was a need for selling and handling facilities to accommodate a growing industry. The two National railways financed and developed a 137 acre site purchased by the City of Winnipeg that was referred to in the land title records as the 'Roman Catholic Mission Property'. On August 14, 1913 the Marion Street facility with its stockyards and packing house was officially opened by Premier Sir Rodmond Roblin. For the next seventy-five years, the Union Stock Yards not only provided the City of St. Boniface with its largest single source employers but became a vital cog in Manitoba's agricultural economy.
