More Information

Collège Jeanne-Sauvé opened in 1990 offering education for Grade 6 to Grade 11 students in french immersion. The school continues to offer french immersion education, although for Grades 9 to 12 students. The school's name was chosen in commemoration of former governor-general Jeanne Sauvé in the spirit of bridging the gap between English-speaking and French-speaking communities in Manitoba through french immersion schooling.

The building features include an open-air cafeteria, weight room, mini greenhouse, and unusual detailing. The architect Glen Coburn of MCM Architects had intended to create a "pleasant environment, with a non-institutional appearance" with the school's design. Additions to the building began in early 2022 to expand the school's French immersion facilities.
