Saint Boniface Cathedral is an important architectural feature of Saint Boniface, Manitoba, Canada, especially in the eyes of the Franco-Manitoban community. A priest who later became a bishop, Norbert Provencher, ordered its construction in 1818 in the form of a small log chapel. Thus the first page in the history of Saint Boniface and Saint Boniface Cathedral was written.
For the second time in the history of the parish, on July 22, 1968, the residents of Saint Boniface would lose their beloved cathedral to a raging fire. In 1972, a new cathedral, designed by Étienne Gaboury and Denis Lussier, would be built behind the 1906 façade. It is the principal church in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Saint Boniface.
Louis Riel, Ambroise-Dydime Lépine and Pierre La Vérendrye are some notable people buried on the grounds.
